Venue Specific Sales Tax

Venue Specific Sales Tax

Citizen Tax Saving Suggestion

How about a city tax on sales at the week-end Market and Festival?

Response: 

This suggestion is a novel idea, however there are legal restrictions preventing the Municipality of Anchorage from isolating a sales tax on a particular set of businesses who choose to operate at a specific venue.  Generally speaking a sales tax needs to be broadly applied to all vendors within the jurisdiction who provide similar products and services that are subject to the tax.
