Sales Tax Proposed For Milwaukee County, Wis.

A bill has been introduced that would allow Milwaukee County, Wis. to impose an additional sales and use tax at the rate of no more than 1 percent of the sales price of certain tangible items, the National Automatic Merchandising Association (NAMA) announced. These items would include personal property, goods and services sold or used in the county. The tax would be used to pay for parks, recreation and culture, transit services and public safety. Existing law states that the county may impose a sales and use tax at the rate of 0.5 percent of the sales price of tangible personal property, goods and services sold or used in the county. The existing county sales and use tax may be imposed only for the purpose of reducing the county's property tax levy. For additional information, contact Kim Radulski at kradulski@vending.org.
