“Food is essential and should be affordable. Increasing the tax on food hurts everyone, but especially those in our community who are already struggling. As a company, we do not believe groceries should be taxed. We feel strongly that Utahns should have an opportunity to vote on the issue before the tax goes into effect.”
~ Bob Harmon, chairman
Harmons Opens Doors to Oppose Food Tax Increase
Harmons Grocery is joining in opposing the food tax increase from 1.75% to 4.85% by opening its 19 statewide stores for people to come in and sign the Utah 2019 Tax Referendum opposing the sales tax increase.
Signatures will be collected in all Harmons locations beginning Saturday, Jan. 11 through Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2020. The deadline to sign the referendum in store is 3:00 p.m. on January 21. Volunteers for the Utah 2019 Tax Referendum will be staffing tables in the stores. Additionally, Harmons associates will be available at the in-store Guest Services to assist with signature witnessing so customers can come in any time and any location that is convenient to them.
