Sales Tax Talk

Today's Carbondale Times has a pretty lengthy article on the request by local restaurants to lower the recently approved  2% sales tax on food and beverages purchased within the city limits. Coupled with the 1% county wide sales tax that goes into effect July 1,  the sales tax on food and beverages within the city limits will reach 11.75%. Needless to say, local restaurants are not particularly thrilled about this and have blamed the increased taxes at least partially on softening sales.
