Seattle sales tax increase

Because my bookkeeper is the bomb, she updated me on the new Seattle sales tax rate before I heard about it anywhere else:

Important information about RTA tax
Effective April 1, 2009, the Regional Transit Authority Tax will increase five-tenths of one percent (.005). The tax increase will be used to expand and coordinate light-rail, commuter-rail, and express bus service, and improve access to transit facilities in King, Pierce, and Snohomish Counties.
State tax will be .065
RTA tax will be .030
Which will be 9.5% for the Seattle area.

This will up the prices of my classes - with tax - from $212.55 to $213.53.


Effective April 1, 2009

*raised eyebrow*
I had the same reaction.
