RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Some state senators say parents shouldn't receive favored North Carolina tax treatment for a child who has registered to vote away from home.
A handful of Republican lawmakers filed a pair of bills this week that would deny taxpayers filling out individual income tax forms from receiving a personal exemption of up to $2,500 for an adult son or daughter who is registered somewhere other than the taxpayer's address.
The measures would appear to target college students who register to vote in the county where their school is located.
The bills are the latest in several filed over the past week that emphasize voting and election changes. GOP legislators have filed bills seeking to scale back early voting and end same-day voter registration and Sunday voting during the period.
