Sen. Kraus to Host Bill Enactment Ceremonies for Senate Bill 1025

Kraus - Media Advisory - 081516

JEFFERSON CITY — State Sen. Will Kraus, R-Lee’s Summit, will host two bill enactment ceremonies to help raise awareness about the Oct. 14 effective date of Senate Bill 1025 and to commemorate the occasion. Members of the press are invited to attend, and any lawmakers present will have the opportunity to speak on the bill if they choose.

Senate Bill 1025 restores instructional classes given at dance studios, gymnastics facilities and other fitness facilities to the same designation as educational classes — the classification they held before the Department of Revenue reinterpreted a sales tax law in 2008. The governor vetoed the measure in June.

On Sept. 14, the Legislature convened for its annual veto session and quickly voted to overturn the governor’s veto. Senate Bill 1025 will officially take effect on Friday, Oct. 14. As of that day, anyone providing instructional lessons will no longer be required to collect sales taxes on those classes. While sales taxes will still be required for tangible items, such as equipment or gear, the actual classes will be tax free.
