FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Frankfort, KY, March 3, 2022—AAF Kentucky Leaders: Good news. Representative Petrie, Chairman of the Appropriations and Revenue Committee and author of HB 8 has removed the ad tax from the bill. It would appear that lawmakers heard loud and clear from the industry that an ad tax is a bad tax.
Thank you to everyone who reached out to legislators to register opposition to the tax. We will keep a close watch on the legislature and let you know if there are any further developments, but for now the ad tax is dead.
