4th Branch North Carolina

NC Legislature's Long Session, 2019

* Please help to encourage the North Carolina legislature to make Bailey Patton state law and provide for fair taxation of ALL government retirees in NC, including military retirees...

The NC 4th Branch is lobbying hard to get the legislative bill entitled “Equal Tax Treatment of Government Retirees” passed this upcoming session. We are approaching a make-or-break point on this critical tax exemption issue that benefits newly retired and soon to be retired military personnel, as well as retired government employees at all levels. A key factor that the General Assembly legislators have often pointed out is that they are not hearing about this issue from their constituents throughout the state. The 4th Branch lobbying team sends our legislative alerts at appropriate times and asks subscribers to send out pre-staged email messages to their respective state legislators. Please know that we have established a new platform to enhance the quality of website operations. Today, most organizations that advocate for causes, use a similar technology as one method of outreach to legislators. Our website is easy to navigate and use to get important messages to the smart phones and computers of staff and legislators. Our chapters of 4th Branch member organizations have tried a variety of outreach methods to solicit support for registering on the 4th Branch website and system with minimal results. Our grassroots efforts have such potential for making a difference, but they require some commitment and effort. Remember that you do not need to be a retiree to register for the 4th Branch website. Please consider encouraging your spouse, other adult family members, friends, colleagues to register for the 4th Branch website at www.4thbranchnc.org.

The 4th Branch Launches New Website & Petition

The 4th Branch Launches New Website & Petition

* Greetings and Happy 2018! We've got great news to share... The 4th Branch has launched a new website and advocacy center in support of our efforts to eliminate the state income tax on government retirees’ hard-earned retirement benefits! If you're receiving this email, you're already part of the new advocacy center and have access to alerts, calls-to-action, petitions and more.

* We Need Your Help! To help us launch the new site and our online advocacy tool, we've launched a new petition (in advance of this year's legislative session) to gather names to show the strength of our cause. Please take just a moment to visit the action center at the website and click "Take Action" (or the arrow beside "1 Petition") to add your name and help us validate our membership.

* As always, being a part of the 4th Branch is free and open to ANYONE concerned about ending the taxation of military, federal, state and local government retirement benefits. Feel free to share this email or the website with any of your peers.
