Alaska – Sales and Use Tax On Ballot April 2017 Target

SALT Report 3753 – Assemblyman Bill Evans was planning on introducing a sales tax on the ballot this month but has decided to delay the introduction. He is shooting for April 2017.

“’This first quarter of the year, we’re going to be so overrun with what the state is doing as far as taxes and things like that … it would get lost in the noise,’ Evans said. ‘I think keeping things separate is just a better way to go.’”

Evans also said he’d like to take more time to inform voters about a sales tax and the economic impact. He hopes the measure could be on the April 2017 ballot and coincide with the city’s first mail-in election.
