May 2021 sales tax rate changes
May isn’t typically a busy month for local sales and use tax rate changes, but there are a few.
Effective May 1, 2021, one or more sales and use tax rates in the following states will change:
- Indiana (gasoline use tax)
- Missouri (prepaid tax for diesel fuel and gasoline)
- South Carolina
- Virginia (transient occupancy tax)
This shouldn’t be mistaken for a comprehensive list. In Colorado, Louisiana, and other states where local tax administration is permitted, local governments may institute a tax rate change without informing the state. When in doubt, it’s always best to check with state and local tax authorities.
