ID Gov. wants to raise sales tax rate

Posted by salestax on September 11, 2006

Idaho Governor Signs Bill to Raise Sales Tax Rate

On August 31, 2006, Governor James E. Risch signed the Property Tax Relief Act. The measure retroactively reduces property taxes to January 1, 2006, offset by an increase in the state’s sales and use tax rate from 5% to 6%, effective October 1, 2006. Additionally, the measure provides for an advisory question to appear on the November 2006 ballot that asks voters to approve these changes. (2006 ID H 1)   (9/1/06)

So, those who have property benefit – however slightly ($20 on a 2,000 tax bill?) – while those who do not have property taxes, just get an increase in the cost of goods.
