North Carolina – NC Legislators Consider Expanding Sales Taxes, Cutting Income Taxes – Colin Campbell – January 12, 2016

“Republican legislators have moved in recent years to lower personal and corporate income taxes while adding sales taxes to services that hadn’t been taxed, such as movie, sports and entertainment tickets. Starting in March, the state will tax repair, maintenance and installation services on vehicles, appliances and other personal property.

Opponents of the shift from income to sales taxes argue that taxing more services will increase the overall tax burden for poor and middle-class residents, who probably spend a higher percentage of income on repairs and maintenance.”
