Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This bill would remove the current sunset date (2021) for the sales tax exemption for food purchases by food banks and non-profit organizations that provide hunger-relief services. The latter exemption would be extended to also include non-profit organizations providing disaster relief. The bill is estimated to reduce local (county, city, and schools) sales taxes by approximately $1.6 million per year on a statewide basis. The substance of this bill has also been added to HB 1035.
