Ky. lawmakers propose tax-free weekend for summer
FRANKFORT, Ky.—Kentucky lawmakers are proposing a tax-free weekend for back-to-school shoppers.
Republican state Rep. Julie Raque Adams of Louisville and Donna Mayfield of Winchester promised on Monday to file legislation in the upcoming legislative session that would lift the state's sales tax for one weekend shortly before the start of each school year.
Their proposed exemption would be extended only to school supplies, clothing, computers and printers.
Twenty other states, including neighboring Tennessee and West Virginia, offered a period of tax-free shopping this year.
