In an effort to eliminate the individual income tax rates, HF 498 proposes to increase the sales and use tax rate from 6% to 11% in order to compensate for the loss. The increase would include sales of tangible personal property, telecommunications service and digital products. The rate would be in effect January 1, 2021 if passed and reduced to 10% by 2030. The bill went to subcommittee in February with no movement since.
