Ballot Access News has just learned that on July 17, 2010, the North Carolina Governor signed SB 1177. It eliminates a law that said a qualified political party could not be listed on the state income tax form unless it has registration of at least 1% of the state total. Parties are listed on state income tax forms in North Carolina and twelve other states, to give taxpayers a chance to donate to that party.
When the Libertarian Party was accidentally listed on the North Carolina tax form in 2009, it received over $39,000. It was not listed on the tax forms that were filed this year because the state did not repeat the error. But it will be listed on future tax forms as long as the party remains ballot-qualified.
