BILL NUMBER:S3878

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the tax law, in relation to
authorizing the county of Putnam to exempt from county sales and
compensating use taxes certain taxable goods and services, during the
period commencing on August ninth and through August eighteenth, two
thousand thirteen

PURPOSE: The purpose of this legislation is to authorize the County
of Putnam to grant exemption from all county sales and use taxes from
August 10th - 19th for clothing and footwear under $110.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section One - amends the tax law is amended by adding a new section
1225 to read as follows:

Section 1225: Not withstanding any other law to the contrary, the
county of Putnam may elect to exempt purchases of clothing and
footwear for which the receipt of consideration given or contracted to
be given is less than one hundred ten dollars per article of clothing,
per pair of shoes or other articles of footwear or per item used or
consumed to make or repair such clothing and which becomes a physical
component part of such clothing, sold within the county from any sales
and compensating use taxes imposed pursuant to part one of this
article during the period commencing August tenth, two thousand
thirteen through August nineteenth, two thousand thirteen.

Section 2. This act shall take effect immediately.

JUSTIFICATION: Many States provide taxpayers with tax free events
ranging from a weekend to one week. Such tax free events are popular
with taxpayers, and to local retailers who welcome the additional
business. In Tennessee, the increase in retail sales has been so high
that many stores have extended their hours. States such as Maryland,
Tennessee, South Carolina, Florida and Alabama empower their counties
to exempt county sales tax from certain items.

This legislation provides the County of Putnam with the legal
authority to exempt taxes as described in the summary above. The
timing is designed to provide sorely needed financial relief for
parents of school-aged children who are purchasing clothing and
footwear for the approaching school year.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 06/20/12 Referred to ways and means

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: See Local Fiscal Impact Note.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
