Effective Monday, May 1, 2006, Fairfield County will impose a new 1% Local Option Sales tax. As a result, all sales of merchandise made in or delivered to Fairfield County will be subject to 6% sales and use tax (or 8% accommodations tax). This change in the tax rate is the result of voter approval of an additional 1% local sales and use tax to reduce the property tax burden in Fairfield County.
The workshop is free, but pre-registration is required. To register, call (803) 898-5593 or e-mail:
