Tax Relief

Petition from Burgum in help of the tax relief plan

BISMARCK, ND (AP) – North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum has asked his supporters to sign a petition supporting his plan to use a portion of the state’s plentiful surpluses to offset income taxes.

It is seen by the legislature as the end of a legislature that has not signaled an appetite for the idea.

The Republican governor in his second term recommended using a portion of the state’s high and better-than-forecast final fund balance of $ 1.1 billion in the last two-year fiscal cycle to provide residents with income tax breaks.

GOP Senate Majority Leader Rich Wardner says he has never heard of a single lawmaker backing the governor’s idea.
