NC Recognized As One Of Fastest Growing Economies


"Governor McCrory announced this week that North Carolina ended the fiscal year with strong revenue growth, meaning business tax rates will be lower in 2017. Tax revenue collections were $21.3 billion, more than $300 million above the threshold for triggering a reduction in the state’s business tax rate from 4 percent to 3 percent beginning January 1, 2017. This will be less than half the 6.9 percent rate paid by North Carolina businesses in 2013."

"North Carolina is affirming itself as a competitive, innovative state," Governor McCrory said in a Newsweek interview headlined North Carolina Set to Become America’s New Innovative Hub. Since 2013, North Carolina has added more than 300,000 new jobs and been recognized as one of the fastest growing economies in the country.
