North Carolina’s economy and population have changed dramatically over the last century, yet our financial systems have remained relatively stagnant. As our population and infrastructure needs change, so too, must our tax system. Tax reform is a complicated and often contentious issue, and North Carolina has once again begun weighing the prospect of reforming the State’s tax system.

The Institute for Emerging Issues, in partnership with the Civitas Institute and the NC Budget and Tax Center, will host a debate on this issue, featuring national experts on the subject of taxation and finance. Central to the debate is the future ability of North Carolina to retain talent, recruit industry, and finance needed infrastructure. This debate will dig deeply in to these issues with the goal of helping attendees understand how North Carolina’s tax reform initiative fits into the broader National discussion on economic growth and sustainability.

Ask a question yourself:

Not sure how long the debate will last, or how many of these questions will end up being asked, but it's worth a shot.
