Town Continues to Oppose Sales Tax Redistribution Efforts in General Assembly

The Southern Shores Council and Town staff continue working in coordination with Dare County and our neighbor Towns to oppose NC Senate Bill 369 (“The Sales Tax Fairness Act“) introduced by  NC State Senator Harry Brown, as well as Senate Bill  608 (“A Simple and Fair Formula for Sales Tax Distributions”   introduced by State Senator Bob Rucho. Each bill proposes a redistribution of sales tax collected in Dare County to other towns and counties. Either of these bills, if enacted, would have a detrimental effect on the sales tax proceeds our Town receives annually to fund our Town services. Any reduction in sales tax proceeds being currently received by the Town of Southern Shores  would have to be made up in the Town budget with an increase in the property tax rate.
