Reducing the frequency of sales tax changes

The Senate also passed SB 5697, which reduces the frequency of local sales tax changes to twice per year. AWC supported the House version, HB 1604, as it would have allowed sales tax changes three times per year. Unfortunately, the House version did not survive this week’s cutoff. We will continue to work on the proposal, as limiting sales tax changes to two times per year delays city ability to make changes following an election or annexation.
