NC Senate Passes $240M In Tax Breaks

North Carolina legislators have approved legislation that includes a long list of extended tax breaks and business-friendly changes estimated to cost about $240 million in the next five years.

The Senate approved the bill on a 30-16 vote Wednesday. The bill now heads to the House.

The bill was changed to preserve a $1 million cap on the salaries of highly paid actors and directors that can be counted toward a total tax break raised from $7.5 million to $20 million.

Producers could write off their in-state spending from their state taxes or collect a multi-million-dollar refund check from taxpayers if they manage to avoid owing taxes.
