Statement from Budget & Tax Center Director Alexandra Forter Sirota on the Senate tax plan

RALEIGH (June 13, 2013) — The Senate tax plan will give tax cuts to the wealthy and profitable corporations while everyone else pays the price.

The loss of revenue for public education, the health and well-being of seniors and children, and our communities will harm everyday North Carolinians and the economy's long-term health. Some North Carolinians will even experience income tax increases, including some seniors and families.

North Carolinians want a tax plan that won't risk the things that have made our state great, especially not on a strategy that has been a proven failure in other states.
