The new federal budget will do a lot for North Carolinians

I’d have structured it a bit differently and combined it with budget cuts. But even as is, the federal tax reform enacted by Congress and signed by President Trump will enhance economic growth for the nation as a whole, and for North Carolina in particular. Slashing America’s relatively high taxes on corporate income will encourage more domestic investment, business starts, business expansions and employment. Reforming and reducing the personal income tax also will boost job creation and take-home pay.
