Bank Heist


Author(s):
Abstract:
North Carolina’s laws enable banks to dodge millions in taxes. The Durham-based Institute for Southern Studies and Asheville-based Investigative Reporting Fund have suggested that the state’s bank tax laws need reformed. Campaign contributions, lobbyists, grassroots organizing, influential board members, and a system of rewards and punishments for incumbent legislators have allowed the banks to create a tax system that favors them. A look at the current system and how it could be changed is explored.
