  • Column: Black people often treated like a cancer on America

  • Column: S.C. exempts more sales tax than it collects

    In the most recent year for which data is available, a review by The Nerve has found, S.C. state government collected $2.4 billion in sales tax revenue – but exempted a full $3 billion.
    That’s the opposite of what one would expect to find. In most forms of taxes, only a few items are exempt, and in a typical year a typical state would take in far more than it would exempt. It’s a simple matter of government needing revenue: Lawmakers are reluctant to dole out too many exemptions since that means less revenue.
