If you are a aficionado of wine and works of art, you’ll be pleased that beginning Sunday you’ll get a sales tax break. This means that if you purchase win and spirits from a Rhode Island liquor store, you will not have to pay the state’s 7 percent sales tax.
And if you buy original works of art or limited edition art works anywhere in the Ocean State, the 7 percent sales tax is waived.
These tax breaks are the result of action taken by the 2013 General Assembly and signed into law by Gov. Lincoln Chafee.
