The proposal will move North Carolina from 44th in total tax burden nationwide to 17th, Tillis said.

The measure replaces the three-tier personal income tax system with a flat tax of 5.8 percent in 2014, which drops to 5.75 percent in subsequent years. Standard deductions increase to $7,500 for single filers, $12,000 for heads of households and $15,000 for married couples.

 

Deductions for mortgage interest on first homes, something that had been a point of contention between the House and the Senate, will be capped at $20,000. Charitable contributions will remain fully deductible, and the state will continue to offer a child tax credit and exempt Social Security income from state taxes.

 

The corporate tax rate will be cut 29 percent in two years, from 6.9 percent now to 5 percent by 2015. If North Carolina meets revenue targets in the coming years, officials said, the corporate rate will drop even further, to 4 percent in 2016 and 3 percent in 2017.

The deal also repeals the estate tax, caps the state gas tax and preserves the sale tax refund for nonprofit groups.

Lowering taxes doesn't bring in good jobs. Creating better trained and educated employees does.
