NEW KENTUCKY SALES TAX - EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2018
The Kentucky state legislature enacted new tax measures this year which impact Parks and Recreation services. Effective July 1, 2018 a 6% sales tax will be charged on admission/services/fees associated with statewide Parks and Recreation offerings that were not previously taxed.
The new sales tax applies to most all offerings through the Hopkinsville Division of Parks and Recreation, including admission fees to Tie Breaker Family Aquatic Center. The state’s Department of Revenue has determined that the Summer Adventure Day Camp fees are not subject to new tax.
If you would like to avoid this tax, please pay your outstanding invoice amount or submit a tax exemption form by no later than Friday, June 29, 2018. Non-profit entities will be exempted from the sales tax by presenting the appropriate forms for future events.
As of July 1, 2018, the Hopkinsville Division of Parks and Recreation will conform to this new Kentucky law. We appreciate the public’s understanding and cooperation as we work through this new sales tax together.
