As HCPED stays in close contact with the business community, we constantly look to identify regulatory concerns that are trending. One item that we have heard from small business, large business, existing industry and prospective clients is that North Carolina’s corporate tax rate is not competitive amongst our peers. If you know of other issues, whether they are broad or specific to your business, please consider attending the hearing.
