To the editor:
The National Certification Medical Association (NCRMA) would like to thank state Rep. Frank Iler for supporting legislation to repeal the Privilege License Tax (PLT).
The House and Senate showed overwhelming bipartisan support to rein in a tax that was never envisioned to get to these levels. Critics fail to mention these key points about PLTs:
Some businesses pay tens of thousands while others pay zero. One Raleigh farmer’s market produce dealer saw his tax bill go from $50 to more than $9,000 with no added benefit.
