Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Middle Class tax cuts may soon have a drastic effect on our community.

They expire December 31st. North Dakota Fair Share says if those taxes are gone, it'll affect the majority of the state's workers and small business owners.

Those tax cuts now help families who make less than $250,000. The group is collecting petition signatures, and educating the community.

It's hoping to change legislators minds, asking for an extension of the tax breaks.

Niles Eastman, North Dakota Fair Share: "The primary goal is to get the message out to Rep. Rick Berg who is of course the key vote here in North Dakota."

The group says without those tax cuts, the country could lose 1.6 million jobs.
