The City and Borough of Sitka has recently started a study to plan for how our community is going to handle and manage solid waste in the future. Please give your input regarding solid waste and recycling issues to assist in the planning process. Please take a few minutes to respond to the questions on the survey by clicking here:
The Sales Tax rate increases to 6% effective April 1st and continues through September 30th for all sales, services and short term rentals. The sales tax rate remains the same at 5% for long term rental of real property such as trailer space rental, boat stall rental, etc. (not residential units which are tax exempt) and the Bed Tax rate remains the same at 6%.
This means that the increased sales tax cap that went from $1,000.00 to $1,500.00 effective October 1, 2012 will cause your maximum sales tax charged to increase from $75.00 to $90.00 per invoice.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Sales Tax Offices of the City and Borough of Sitka at (907)747-1840.
