Robert L. Mitten: It’s a wash

April 24, 2014 

I read Art Pope’s April 16 Point of View “ NC tax reform and flusher families” on all the wonderful things Gov. Pat McCrory and the Jones Street crowd are doing to fatten our take-home pay. I have one question. How does the increase in the sales tax on electricity and piped natural gas that begins July 1 affect those hefty take-home pay increases?
