Sales tax plays an important roll in funding the services and infrastructure the people of Juneau rely on.
Merchants are required to collect sales tax on non-exempt purchases and remit that amount to the CBJ Sales Tax Office. Sales tax is not a tax on businesses or business owners, but is the People's money collected on behalf of CBJ by merchants, for the benefit of the community as a whole.
The vast majority of Juneau merchants are very conscientious in complying with filing and remitting requirements. Delinquent merchants represent less than 0.08% of CBJ's annual sales tax collections.

The City also offers sales tax exemption cards to senior citizens, non-profit organizations, and for resale purposes.
