BALLPARK SALES TAX ENDS EARLY IN ARIZONA
Published October 20, 1997
After November 30, Maricopa County (AZ) merchants will be asked to stop collecting a quarter-cent sales tax which was being used to finance Bank One Ballpark, according to Mike McCloy of the ARIZONA REPUBLIC. A "soaring economy" has helped raise County Stadium District's $238M share of the ballpark's $354M price. The stadium tax, which has been in effect since April '95, "originally was scheduled to expire" after the D'Back open their season in April, but a "closer look at the numbers" brought a request to terminate the tax five months early (ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 10/18).
