No Sales Tax Holiday Weekend
August 2nd, 3rd & 4th
The State of Kansas does not offer an “official” Sales Tax Holiday, but for the past several years Fort Scott retailers and restaurants have organized our own “holiday” through the Chamber.
Local businesses can choose to participate
by offering customers a discount during
the promotion equal to our local
sales tax rate of 9.4%.
The Sales Tax Holiday weekend is to encourage locals to shop hometown vs. crossing the border, and to welcome new shoppers to the area.
We urge you to let us know by next Thursday, July 25th if your business is participating. Participating businesses will
be included in a press release and advertising in the area/region.
If you participated in 2018, and we don’t hear from you, we will assume you are participating again this year!
