Tax Tip: Sales Tax Increase
- September 3rd, 2019
- in News
Beginning October 1, 2019, the City of Tuscaloosa and the City of Northport will implement a 1% sales tax increase. This means that the total sales tax rate in both cities will increase from the previous 9% to a rate of 10%. Any City of Tuscaloosa or Northport taxable sales made by the University starting Oct 1 should have sales tax of 10% charged or included in the price. For any sales made prior to the rate change that are applicable to and will be reported in October forward, 10% tax will be reported and paid even if only 9% tax was withheld (ex. Athletic tickets sold in May for a game occurring in October).
For questions concerning the increase relating to your department, please contact Amanda Robinson firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information regarding citywide effects of the sales tax increase for the City of Tuscaloosa and the City of Northport, see the articles below, respectively.
