State of North Dakota secondary Archives: on Tax Reform


Michael Coachman: Taxes for government, not forced redistribution of wealth

Individuals, families and the government should be responsible in their spending. Taxpayers expect the government to be efficient and avoid waste with their money. The State should only collect taxes to fund legitimate government functions. Government taxes and fees should be limited to essential, inherently governmental functions and not for the forced redistribution of wealth, or disproportionate advantages for targeted interest groups.

Doug Burgum: Exempted military retirement benefits from state income tax

In North Dakota, we've got 50,000 veterans who call North Dakota home, and that goes all the way back to some surviving greatest generation, World War II folks, for my dad's generation. Kudos to all of you, because with their leadership, we exempted military retirement benefits from state income tax. And we cut through red tape so the trailing military spouses with occupational licenses from other states can work here.

Doug Burgum: Private investment in infrastructure reduces property taxes

Communities have a choice about how and where they spend their dollars. And as we look at growing populations it's imperative that we fully utilize the existing infrastructure we've already built to support that growth rather than extending new infrastructure that raises everyone's property taxes. We have an opportunity through our design choices to drive taxes down, because taxes are driven by the footprint of the city.

Dustin Peyer: Revenue should come from wealthy; and sales tax

I believe a fair system of taxes along with state owned business can give the people a fair amount of public services. Trickle down does not work. We need to be eliminating taxes for business that pay a living wage. For the middle class. And for ownership of property and others. I believe the majority of tax collections should come from sales tax and from collections from the wealthiest folks who make money off the middle class workforce.

Thomas Campbell: overhaul the tax code to grow jobs

Tom believes the nation's $19 trillion debt is not just a fiscal problem--it's a moral problem too. It's wrong to bury our children and grandchildren under a mountain of debt. He will fight to eliminate wasteful spending, balance the budget and pay down the debt. On taxes, Tom supports overhauling the tax code to grow jobs. Instead of letting the lobbyists and special interests write the tax laws, he'll put hard-working North Dakota families first.
