Current Bill Summary

SS/SB 123 - In addition to any local sales tax imposed or authorized to be imposed as of January 1, 2022, this act authorizes any taxing jurisdiction to impose one or more sales taxes for purposes to be designated by the taxing jurisdiction, provided that the total combined rate of local sales taxes imposed by a taxing entity that is an incorporated city, town, or village shall not exceed 5.0%; the total combined rate of local sales taxes imposed by a county shall not exceed 5.0%; and for all other taxing jurisdictions, the total combined rate of sales taxes in any given taxing jurisdiction shall not exceed 3.25%. Such limits shall not apply to transient guest taxes or convention and tourism taxes.

In any election in which more than one sales tax levy is approved by the voters, and the passage of such levies results in a combined rate of sales tax in excess of the limits provided under the act, only the sales tax levy receiving the most votes shall become effective.

No taxing jurisdiction with a combined rate of sales tax in excess of the rates provided in the act as of August 28, 2021, shall be required to reduce or repeal any such sales tax rate.
