N.C. Representative Susan Martin of Wilson has filed a bill calling for a study of taxation on manufacturing equipment. Rep. Martin wants manufacturing equipment exempt from state sales tax and assessments. The bill also addresses an extensive list of proposed exemptions, including cranes, parts for equipment repairs, and machines used at state ports and and process centers.

Wilson, located east of Raleigh and traditionally a center for tobacco sales, recently was named among the top 12 communities in which to start a new business by personal finance website WalletHub.
