Reducing the frequency of local sales tax changes

The House passed a bill that would reduce the frequency of local sales tax changes. Currently, local governments may change their sales tax rates on four different dates each year: January 1, April 1, July 1, and October 1. HB 2565 would eliminate the option of changes on October 1. Since local governments seldom make sales tax changes on October 1, AWC has taken a neutral position on the bill. The bill now goes to the Senate, where it is scheduled to be heard in the Ways & Means Committee on Tuesday, February 23 at 3:30 pm.
