Sales Tax – a State and Local Tax
The state’s sales tax is imposed on the purchase price of tangible personal property or taxable service sold at retail. Use tax is imposed on the storage, use or consumption of tangible personal property in this state. The 4.225 percent state sales and use tax is distributed into four funds to finance portions of state government – General Revenue (3.0 percent), Conservation (0.125 percent), Education (1.0 percent), and Parks/Soils (0.10 percent). Cities and counties may impose a local sales and use tax. Special taxing districts (such as fire districts) may also impose additional sales and use taxes.
