in Lawrence, Kansas, an NBC Action News viewer called in and
thought he was having the same problem with Nebraska Furniture
The viewer saw that he was charged 9.025 percent for sales tax
on his purchase. We did our own digging and found the Wyandotte
County sales tax rate is set at 8.925 percent and has been that way
since July 2010.
It sounds like viewer was overcharged, but in fact he was
correct sales tax rate. We discovered there are actually
three different sales tax rates in the Village West shopping
According to Wyandotte County Unified Government public
information officer Edwin Birch, the sales tax rates range from
8.925 percent to 9.525 percent.
