Gibson County Tennessee Sales Tax Rate Change

  • Apr 11, 2012 | Susan McLain

The majority of Gibson County, Tennessee voters approved a local sales tax rate increase. The new rate of 2.75% applies to all taxable sales of tangible personal property made on or after May 1, 2012.

According to the Tennessee Department of Revenue, "...the local option tax rate is applicable to the first $1,600 of the sales price of any single article of tangible personal property sold, unless that item is specifically exempted from local tax or taxed at another rate by statute. the local tax cap on the sales of single articles of tangible personal property will be $44."

Any services with billing periods starting on or after May 1, 2012 by sellers located in Gibson County, Tennessee or in the cities of Bradford, Dyer, Gibson, Rutherford and Yorkville will also apply the new sales tax rate.

Other cities in Gibson County had already increased their sales tax rate to 2.75%. Those cities include: Trenton, Humboldt, Medina, Kenton and Milan. This majority vote to increase the sales tax brings all Gibson County cities to the same local tax rate.
