Kentucky residents will be paying a slew of new taxes beginning July 1. Starting Sunday, prices for things like car repairs, tanning bed visits, veterinarian care and gym memberships will jump 6 percent because of a new law that was passed. On the same day, nonprofits will have to add an extra 6 percent for admission prices to cultural and athletic events. The change comes from a recent state Supreme Court ruling that says the Kentucky Constitution does not exempt nonprofits from state sales and use taxes. The changes also include a tax cut for many. Most state taxpayers had paid 6 percent of their taxable income to the state. Now, they will pay 5 percent.
