Candidates for Kentucky’s 5th District State Representative answered questions on the state’s service tax at a forum in Murray on Tuesday. The legislation went into effect in July and requires businesses and nonprofits to collect sales tax on services. Democratic candidate David Ramey says the bill is terrible “all the way across the board.” He says if elected he would vote to repeal the tax as it applies to church picnics like Fancy Farm.

The investigation began on a concern involving surveillance cameras in the offices of the Calloway County Clerk and Property Valuation Administrator recording audio. Since then, WKMS News has conducted hours of interview and received hundreds of documents.
