Some Arkansas lawmakers are pushing for an end to sales taxes on donations to charity.
A legislative committee Thursday reviewed a sales tax on some types of charitable gifts.
Republican State Senator Alan Clark sponsored the study. Clark said he owns a hardware store and often can’t sell all his merchandise, including rugs and machine parts.
“You'd put them in the dollar bin and nobody was glad to take them. The Fire Department was glad to get them," he said.
"What's the state of Arkansas going to charge that retailer a sales tax for?” he asked.
