Body

One bill already on the books will affect our wallets starting Tuesday. The state’s sales tax goes up a full penny Tuesday, bringing the total rate charged in most counties to 7.75 percent.

At the same time, cigarettes, beer, wine and liquor will have higher excise taxes.

The higher taxes are part of $1billion in new revenues the legislature and governor agreed upon to balance the state budget.
