House Passes Income & Corporate Tax Cuts

Posted:
Bismarck, ND -

The proposal to send $1 Billion in tax relief back to North Dakotan's picks up steam.

The North Dakota House has approved income and corporate tax cuts for citizen tax payers and businesses.

It's a $352 million package with $101 million in corporate and $251 in income tax cuts.

This is a compromise.

The House originally passed $500 million in income and corporate tax relief, the senate reduced it to $125 million, what the Governor proposed.

Republicans and Democrats were split on the issue.

Democrat Corey Mock says the average North Dakotan will only get $268 from the income tax savings.

He also says out of state corporations will get 82% of the corporate tax relief.

Republicans say North Dakota needs to do a better job of managing how much it collects from tax payers...

Rep. Craig Headland of Montpelier says, "I think it's time we give the citizens of North Dakota a little bit of money back, or we quit taking it from them is a better way to put it."

"Until all the roads are fixed, until everyone feels safe in western ND, until every ambulance service needs are met, until every hospital has it's funding, I can't support this," says Scot Kelsh of Fargo.

"We have an obligation to meet the needs of the people, with the level of spending I think we have done that. Once you've achieved that level then it's time to give the money back to the people who paid the tax," says Representative Wes Belter of Fargo.

House bill 1250 will more than likely be voted on in the Senate Tuesday.
