Sales tax on WKU event tickets increase by 6 percent

Beginning July First, The Kentucky Department of Revenue requires a 6-percent sales tax on all non-profit organizations, which includes events hosted by the organizations.

This means that WKU Athletics must now charge an additional six percent sales tax to event tickets, both single game and season. According to a press release, these new changes will not affect parking or donations.
