Lawmakers pass tax cleanup bill late Wednesday night

Printer-friendly version

The Kentucky Nonprofit Network released the following statement on the bill's passage.

“Kentucky’s nonprofit organizations have moved a critical step closer to relief from the burden of collecting and remitting sales tax on admissions to their events and on items sold for fundraising purposes...

"As employers of one in eleven Kentuckians, nonprofit organizations are essential to Kentucky’s quality of life - the kind of quality of life that makes businesses want to operate in Kentucky. Nonprofits are also often vital partners with the Commonwealth to deliver programs and services the state is obligated to provide.

"When nonprofits are hurting, the Kentuckians they serve are hurting. We appreciate the General Assembly’s recognition of the vital work of our nonprofit sector. This legislative solution provides much-needed relief by ensuring that the funds donated to the commonwealth’s charities will stay with the charities — investing in their vital work to address critical issues and strengthen our communities.”
