“Rep. Tim Quinn, R-Heber City, told the Legislature’s Revenue and Taxation Interim Committee his bill for the 2018 session would retain the local 1.25 percent sales tax on food, so Utahns would still pay some tax on their grocery purchases. Quinn said he believes Utahns would have no problem paying another 0.24 percent in the state’s 4.7 percent sales tax rate to offset eliminating the 1.75 percent state sales tax now charged on food.”
