What rate will I need to charge my customer?
For transactions on or after January 1, 2013, the tax rate(s) you are charging now will increase by one quarter of one percent (.25%). In addition to the statewide sales and use tax rate, some cities and counties have voter-approved district taxes. If you are located in a special tax district, your sales or purchases will be subject to the increased statewide rate of 7.50%, plus the applicable district tax rate.
How are fixed price contracts affected?
The statewide 0.25% rate increase will apply to all taxable sales and purchases made as part of fixed priced contracts and fixed price lease agreements that were entered into prior to January 1, 2013. The increased rate will replace the rate in effect at the time you entered into the fixed-price contract or fixed-price lease agreement.
