New Sales Taxes in Kentucky Begin July 1st
When July 1st hits on Sunday, Kentuckians will begin paying sales taxes on some common every day appointments.
Prices for services such as car repairs, tanning, gym memberships, and veterinary care will go up by 6 percent.
Also starting Sunday, nonprofits will have to add an extra 6 percent for admission to athletic and cultural events such as UK tickets. This change comes from a recent Supreme Court ruling that says the Kentucky Constitution does not exempt nonprofits from state sales and use taxes.
On the other side of this coin, lawmakers have included a tax cut for "many". Most state taxpayers will now pay 5 instead of 6 percent of their taxable income to the state.
