If you pay attention to your cash register receipts, you probably noticed that Lancaster County’s sales tax just went up.
The sales tax increased by a penny on Friday to 7 cents per dollar.
The extra penny tax was approved by county voters in a referendum in November. It will be used to pay the bonds on the county’s proposed new courthouse, which is expected to cost about $33 million. The tax is on top of the state’s normal 5 percent sales tax and the county’s 1 percent local-option sales tax.
