SITKA, ALASKA A sales tax exemption for residential renters will stay on the books.
On a split vote, the assembly last night (Tue 6-10-08) left in place the one-year old rental tax break, even though it has cost local government a half-million dollars.
Most assembly members felt that now was not the time to shift a financial burden on to renters.
