Monday is the end of the sales tax quarter, and is Tuesday our first day at 8% in Jefferson County? I think it is, so buy a car by tomorrow and save fiddy bucks or so.
The extra quarter point is supposed to generate an extra $4.5M with 47% going to the County 29% to the towns and villages and 24% to the City.
I haven't read or heard anything about it but I am pretty sure it was approved in both Albany and at 175.
On the other hand, wouldn't businesses be notified ? I never received anything, not that it matters with me, but a lot of places would want to reprogram registers, so maybe it doesn't take effect til later.
