NEW STATE LAW ADDS SALES TAX TO WKU TICKETS
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Beginning with the new 2018-19 fiscal year, which began July 1,
the Kentucky Department of Revenue is requiring all non-profit organizations to
collect a 6-percent sales tax on admissions to events hosted by the organization
which includes athletic events.
With the new laws in effect, WKU Athletics will be required to add an additional
6-percent sales tax to event tickets, both single-game and season. The change will
be reflected in the single-cost price of tickets but will not affect parking or
Tickets purchased prior to July 1 will not be affected by this change.

reflect the new sales tax inclusion.
