BISMARCK (AP) — Supporters of tax cuts say they're afraid the North Dakota Legislature won't go far enough in reducing taxes.
A group of conservative organizations is rallying Tuesday in the state Capitol. They say the Republican Legislature should approve at least $150 million in permanent corporate and individual income tax reductions.
Lawmakers are considering a bill that cuts income taxes by $111 million. The rate reductions would be in effect for only two years.
North Dakota Taxpayers Association director Dustin Gawrylow says the $150 million in tax cuts should be a minimum reduction, and they should be permanent.
North Dakota Policy Council director Brett Narloch (NAHR’-lawk) says the Legislature has a healthy budget surplus. Narloch says lawmakers could be letting a tax-cutting opportunity slip away.
