JUNEAU CHANGES DISCOUNT
Effective December 1, 2021, the City of Juneau changed the vendor fee discount to a flat $30, and it may not exceed tax remitted. The system automatically zeros tax due and adds back any tax after the discount.
ALASKA COULD IMPOSE SALES TAX
Once again, the state of Alaska is considering a bill that would enact a state sales tax. HB4005 was referred to the Ways and Means Committee on October 4, 2021. If passed, it would authorize the Department of Revenue to enter into a Streamlined Sales Tax Agreement and create a 2% sales tax on tangible personal property (TPP) and services as well as a use tax of 2%. The collected tax would need to be remitted to the state at the end of each month effective July 1, 2022.
