Should Sales Tax Be Applied to Clothing?
In this week's Hot Topics conversation, we want to know how you feel about a bill that has been introduced in the State Legislature.
This week, the Senate Tax Reform Committee began working on measures, including one that would expand the sales tax base while lowering the overall rate by half a percent.
Under the bill, shoppers would pay sales tax on individual clothing items costing more than $200 dollars. The first $200 would be exempt.
The committee did not take action on the plan.
