Reducing the frequency of local sales tax changes

Companion bill #: No Companion Bill.

House - LAW

Summary/AWC comments

Currently, local governments may change their sales tax rates on four different dates each year: January 1, April 1, July 1, and October 1. This bill 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.
