Wayne County kills sales tax exemption, will rise to 8% on March 1st

Get ready for a price hike, of the sorts, in Wayne County.

A sales tax increase is coming. Purchases less than $110 will now come with an 8% hit.

The change will take hold on March 1st. A 16-year-old sales tax exemption was eliminated.

Wayne County estimates that it will gain $600,000 from the additional tax, with $500,000 going to the County, and approximately $100,000 toward towns and villages.

“Not a lot of business. A lot of them have gone out. So there’s not too many here,” said Lisa Herman. The Newark resident spoke with RochesterFirst.com about changes in the landscape over the last several decades.
