NC 39th In Country For Business Tax Rate

North Carolina ranks 39Th in the country for its business tax competitiveness and the ability to encourage business. That's according to the Triangle Business Journal, which reported the results of the Non-profit tax foundation.

The journal says North Carolina's score suffered because of the variety of property taxes that local governments put on businesses. North Carolina is also one of only three states to tax gifts, and one of ten states to tax intangible personal property such as stocks, bonds and trademarks.

    Actually, with the rate industry is leaving NC for less taxes, the more they should offer to bring jobs back. Several large companies came to NC and didn't get the deal Virgina or SC gave them. Why, the legislature might give them a tax break, but the city or county burns them.....

    I dont understand this.The small people that work with the D.O.T. took a%1 pay cut The Small people that work with the N.C. Prison System took a %1 pay cut. Most of the staff that work in Beaufort COUNTY Hospital took a%2 pay cut(where my sister works).The county commissioners and the people that work in the tax offices in Tyrell county give themselves a %2 PAY RAISE! While our taxes go up.No wonder there is know growth.

    We are taxed to death. Our income is taxed, anything we buy is taxed, our property and vehicles are taxed yearly(not just a one time thing). They tax us to death. Give us a BREAK!!!!!!! NC state tax rate just went up 1%.

    That's a very misleading statistic. Every time a big corporation shows up on the doorstep of the capitol, the legislatures votes them a tax break. Does anyone besides me and Obama snake Oil Co see anything wrong with that?? It wouldn't seem so. Otherwise our legislature wouldn't be full of tax and spend liberals.

    High taxes on businesses make the businesses leave. No businesses means high unemployment and less tax revenue. Look at California as businesses are moving to Arizona,Texas,etc. If it wasn't for the military bases, with high civil service salaries and federal subsidies to local schools, this state would really be in bad shape. Keep voting for the Marxist/Socialist Party for Governor and legislators. Wake up and see what is happening.

    Suprise! Like I maintain, this state has a spending problem and some of you have a voting problem.
