I would like to remind you that the State Sales and Use Tax rate will be reduced from 7 percent to 6.875 percent on January 1, 2017. Business owners should prepare to change their point-of-sale systems to reflect the lower rate for the New Year.
Additionally, rates for sales tax in Urban Enterprise Zones also will change on January 1, 2017. The rate in a designated UEZ will be 50 percent of the sales tax rate, or 3.4375 percent. The previous UEZ rate was 3.5 percent.
