Governor Burgum and Republican Leadership Announce Flat Tax Proposal For 2023 Session
This afternoon, Governor Burgum along with Republican legislative leadership, held a press conference to announce their intent to pass a Flat Income Tax reform package during the 2023 legislative session.
Under the proposed plan, all North Dakotans making under $54,725 (single) and $95,600 (married) would pay zero income tax, and all income over those figures would pay 1.5% flat income tax rate based on federal taxable income.
(Not sure if they meant to put a marriage penalty in those figures but the bill has yet to be drafted.)
