Anchorage mayor considers sales tax

Posted: September 18, 2013 - 2:37pm

ANCHORAGE (AP) — Anchorage residents soon might be hearing the phrase “plus tax.”

The Anchorage Daily News reports Mayor Dan Sullivan is considering a sales tax in the city to reduce the burden on property taxes.

Sullivan says four “community discussions” will be set up in October and November about a possible sales tax.

Meetings with civic groups were held earlier this year.

His spokeswoman says one idea that came from those discussions was instituting a seasonal sales tax, targeting summer tourists.

Sullivan could push for a vote on the sales tax during the April municipal elections.

However, voters haven’t been warm to the idea in the past. They’ve rejected a city sales tax four times before.
