Tax Foundation's new white paper on North Carolina’s Tax Competitiveness

User Fee Based Transportation Funding

Percentage of Transportation Funding Derived from User Fees

What does this mean?

Transportation revenue can be generated from sources of revenue supported by the general public (such as general sales taxes, property tax, or vehicle property tax) and sources of revenue directly related to the use of the road (such as a tax on gasoline purchases or fees paid to use toll roads). This metric describes the portion of the state’s funding that is derived from user fees.

Why does this matter?

Transportation is an important component necessary for supporting the state’s businesses. Dedicated revenue, in the form of user fees, are less likely to be diverted to other purposes.
