North Carolina Bill to Abolish State Income Tax Check-off for Political Parties Moves Ahead

From Ballot Access News, June 15th: 

On June 12, North Carolina HB 951 passed the House Finance Committee. It repeals the state income tax form check-off that asks taxpayers if they wish to send a small donation to their favorite political party. In recent years a surprisingly large number of taxpayers have chosen to send a donation to the Libertarian Party, so much so that last year, the party got $96,664.
