sales tax changes March 2017
Would you be surprised if I said there was a rate change in Alabama? No? Probably because Alabama has the distinct honor of having the most sales and or use tax changes 36 month period. This month is no exception!
The great City of Atlanta is seeing a rate increase, not just this month, but another one scheduled for April. The total current sales tax rate (prior to March 1) within the City of Atlanta is 8 percent. The rate is comprised of a 4 percent state sales tax rate, a 3 percent Fulton County sales tax rate, and a 1 percent Water and Sewer Projects and Cost Tax (commonly known as Municipal Option Sales Tax or MOST). On November 8, 2016 the electorate of the City of Atlanta voted to levy the Atlanta MARTA Sales Tax at a rate of 0.5 percent beginning March 1, 2017. Starting April 1, there will also be an increase of .4 percent in the City’s Transportation Special Purpose Local-option sales tax or TSPLOST.But don;t worry, I will remind you of that in next month’s tax changes blog. For more information, here is a link to the Policy Bulletin SUT-2017-01.
Okay, I think that’s it for March 1st tax changes, so let’s see what’s new in USPS ZIP codes.
