RALEIGH — North Carolina income tax filers will receive more generous breaks in their returns shortly but may cover more upfront sales taxes for online purchases at a step Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper has signed into legislation.
Cooper statement came hours after he vetoed.
The step signed the standard deduction meaning the total amount of income on that no taxes are paid by filers — by $750 to $. The deduction will be 10,750.
The law also directs businesses to collect sales taxes on customers buying. It is intended to collect additional taxes out of out-of-state retailers, provided a current U.S. Supreme Court decision.
