The 4th Branch has launched its "Keep the Promise NC" campaign on behalf of more than 300,000 military, federal, state and local government retirees from across North Carolina. The goal of this effort is to urge the State of North Carolina to meet its responsibility to all government retirees by eliminating the unfair state income tax on their earned retirement benefits, which it promised would be tax-free when they began their careers of public service. We look forward to your participation in our effort. Please take the first step by signing up for important news updates, Action Alerts and other useful information about how you can make a difference!

Investing in the Future
North Carolina's state income tax on the earned retirement benefits of retired public servants is an unwise tax policy that denies North Carolina significant economic benefits, including thousands of jobs and increases in consumer spending, GDP, local capital, new home construction, and local sales and property tax revenues. In fact, an economic analysis performed by an independent economist for The 4th Branch shows a benefit-to-cost ratio of 2.5 to 1 for terminating this unfair state income tax.
