Sales Tax Redistribution Proposals - SB 369 and SB 608

Senator Terry Van Duyn gave a brief summary of SB 369 and SB 608 during the April 9, 2015 Town Council Meeting. These bills, currently under discussion in the NC Senate, propose to distribute all sales tax revenues on a per capita basis at the state and local level. Buncombe County municipalities currently receive these distributions on an ad valorem basis. For Montreat, the loss in local sales tax revenues under the currently proposed bill language is estimated at $223,605, a 67% decrease. The Town will monitor the status of these bills very closely throughout this legislative session. Citizens are encouraged to contact Senator Van Duyn, Senator Tom Apodaca, Representative John Ager, Representative Susan C. Fisher, Representative Brian Turner, and Governor Pat McCrory to express their concerns and comments about these proposed bills.
