Utah Sales Tax on Pest Management Services Revealed in Legislative Policy Proposal

On Thursday, November 7, 2019, the Utah Legislature’s Tax Restructuring and Equalization Task Force unveiled a draft bill that would reduce income and corporate taxes, however, it would offset those cuts by taxing various service industries, including pest control. The Utah Pest Management Association supports common-sense tax cuts; however, our industry believes that taxing pest control services should be off the table. Utah should not be increasing the cost of protecting public health and property. We urge all Utah members and industry friends to participate in our grassroots campaign advocating against the sales tax on pest control services! Lawmakers hope to pass this proposal in a December special session. We will keep members apprised of developments.
