Abstract:
The North Carolina General Fund covers two large expenditures, parts of which were to services not provided just a decade ago: state aid and obligations and charitable and correctional institutions. Funds to state aid, which include public welfare, physical care, public employee retirement funds, cultural agencies, and other agencies such as fisheries and civilian defense, were over 11% of the budget for 1951. Charitable and correctional institutions, including mental hospitals, tuberculosis sanitariums, children's rehabilitation hospitals, orphanages, and correctional schools, received over 7% of the General Fund appropriations.

Abstract:
The North Carolina Budget Bureau found that the largest unencumbered surplus since 1948 will carry over for the new fiscal year starting July 1, 1951. Although the General Fund spent over $150,000,000 for general administration, education institutions, charitable and correctional institutions, state aid, pensions, and contingencies, the state also saw revenues from taxes totaling over $176,000,000. This leaves the state with a credit balance of over $17,000,000 for the next fiscal year.

Abstract:
There is a call in Congress for another increase in corporate income taxes. Although taxes paid by large companies and corporations in 1950 amounted to over $12 billion, it is found that the taxes levied upon companies, especially those that offer services such as telephone or power, are ultimately taken up by the users, or customers. As customers bear the cost of company taxes through increased cost of service and labor, many suggest an increased corporate tax to be the wrong decision.

One of the burdens of cities and urban areas is the collection of refuse and waste. In the choices for refuse disposal and management, North Carolina municipalities may see economic benefit and effective methodology in using the sanitary fill operation.
