those seem contradictory.
can somebody please answer -- If I go to the grocery story and buy meats, produce, dairy, mayo, napkins, detergent -- are these items taxed or not? (never mind the "prepared food" category!). Thanks.

Default Sales Tax in NC

This thread began almost 2 years ago and the previous information is now outdated.

Sales tax in North Carolina is a 2-part tax, state & local. The state sales tax rate is 4.5%, but the local sales tax rate varies from a low of 2.5% to a high of 3.0%. So, in most areas of the state the combined sales tax rate is 6.75%, but can be as high as 7.25% in other locations such as Mecklenburg County.

Yes they are taxed. Food items at 2%, the rest at 6.75 - 7% depending on the county you are in.

Default What should be taxed?

A question: what is the most progressive tax? Granted that the community has needs that individuals cannot provide (e.g. police protection) , or that all people need if we are going to have a civil sociey (e.g. education) I think that the best tax is the land portion of the real estate tax. It doesn't discourage work, and it doesn't encourage land speculation.
