The current NC legislature has determined they will end the popular annual tax-free weekend for NC consumers, ostensibly to stem the revenue loss to the state from such “holidays” from being taxed on things they need to buy for kids’ school, etc. There still seems to be plenty of tax money to spend on all-expense paid “holidays” to popular destinations such as Paris and Hawaii for public servants though. Now that’s a real trip.
