LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Kentucky won't be putting a tax on food at grocery stores. The panel appointed to study tax reform rejected the proposal to tax food, saying it would be a burden on the poor.
Consultants had said a six percent tax could generate about $500 million each year.
At the meeting, members also voted to reject several other proposals, including one that would raise the coal severance tax rate, remove the property tax on airplanes, and give a tax credit to people who home-school.
