The Republican led legislature has made great strides in reducing corporate and personal income tax rates. This reduction in tax rates has made us more competitive with surrounding states and has helped our “Carolina Comeback.” Representative Scott Stone has been proud to cast votes which continued to lower tax rates so we can make North Carolina the most competitive state in the country for businesses and individual taxpayers. Scott will also fight against tax policies which are divisive or pit one part of the state against another. His leadership on fiscal issues led the American Conservative Union to name Scott among legislators earning its prestigious “Award for Conservative Excellence.” In addition to being in the top tier of this ranking, he was one of only 17 members of the House to earn a perfect 100% score.
As a business executive who has managed multi-million dollar budgets, Scott knows how to control costs and implement market approaches to increase revenues – without tax increases. He will bring his business background to the General Assembly to ensure common sense, fiscally responsible solutions for the spending of your money.
