TAXES MATTER

Our collective contributions to the education, health, and well-being of our communities through taxes benefit us all. But tax systems have been rigged by the wealthy and powerful to ask more from those with the least. These regressive tax systems make it more difficult to address inequalities across income and race.

North Carolina can go all-in to make sure our tax code does better for families and communities. We know that progressive revenue choices can strengthen economic opportunity and narrow the gaps in income and wealth that have been fueled by discrimination and exclusion.

Tax policy should be guided by core principles and informed by the outcomes resulting from past choices.
