On Tuesday, May 7, NC State University's Institute for Emerging Issue, in partnership with the Civitas Institute and the Budget & Tax Center, a project of the North Carolina Justice Center, will host a debate on the issue of tax reform in North Carolina.
During "Financing the Future: Debating State Tax Reform for North Carolina," Jared Bernstein from the Center on Budget & Policy Priorities and Elizabeth Malm from The Tax Foundation will discuss the state's complex tax system. Tax reform is an often contentious issue, and North Carolina has once again begun weighing the prospect of reforming the State’s tax system. Central to the debate is the future ability of North Carolina to retain talent, recruit industry, and finance needed infrastructure. This debate will dig deeply in to these issues with the goal of helping attendees understand how North Carolina’s tax reform initiative fits into the broader National discussion on economic growth and sustainability.
The event will be held from 11:45 a.m.-1:00 p.m. at the Emerging Issues Commons in the James B. Hunt, Jr. Library on Centennial Campus at NC State University. There is a $10 registration fee for entry and a boxed lunch. Click here to register for the event.
