School Sales Tax Holiday
Frankfort, KY – A Kentucky lawmaker is proposing a sales tax holiday for items such as clothes, computers and school supplies. Eastern Kentucky Democratic Representative Fitz Steele is planning legislation for the General Assembly's upcoming January session. Steele's proposal would create a three-day tax holiday in early August for Kentuckians to avoid the state's 6 percent sales tax.
Items could also be purchased tax-free over the Internet during the break. Steele says the plan would help families just before the school year starts. It would run from the first Friday in August through Sunday.
