Michael Chaudhuri: Taxing situation

December 21, 2013 

As I try to fill out the confusing new North Carolina withholding forms, my blood starts to really boil.

So we have a “lower” tax rate that largely benefits the rich, combined with, among things, taxes on movie tickets and no longer being able to deduct college savings fund contributions, both of which will hurt me and many others in the state. And it seems like these changes have been shoved down our throats by the current legislature. All I can say is, throw these bums out!
