  •  Sales taxes are not voluntary (4+ / 0-)

    I must pay sales taxes on everything I purchase. I don't have the option of not purchasing food,clothing, gasoline. BTW the awful NC legislature is about to increase these sales taxes while adding hundreds of "service" taxes to doctor visits, car washes, haircuts, bowling etc.  They even plan to tax medications. All of this so they can cut the state income tax on the highest income level only and so they can eradicate the estate tax which of course only applies to the very wealthy.
