2. Increase the state sales tax paid on food from the current 2% to the 6.5%, which is the state's current rate of general sales tax. This tripling of the tax rate on food will adversely affect those who already have little money to spend on food.
3. Phase out of the reimbursement to non-profits on state sales taxes paid on purchases, to include taxes on a number of services heretofore not taxed at all.
What is this ... North Carolina as envisioned by Charles Dickens?
