Sales tax increase now in effect
New year, higher taxes.

Businesses started collecting higher taxes on sales this week, and persons and businesses in Kitsap County will pay the new rate for items purchased for business or personal use.
Taxes raised from the .001 increase will be used to fund chemical dependency and mental health treatment services.
