The council met from May, 1996 to February, 1997. The council expired January 1, 1997.
In 1997, the legislature directed the Revisor of Statutes, in coordination with legislative staff, to prepare a bill clarifying and recodifying Chapter 297A - Sales and Use Tax. This was in response to a recommendation by the 1996 Sales Tax Advisory Council. The bill was introduced in the 2000 session and enacted into law (Laws 2000, ch. 418).
The council consisted of 17 members, including ten legislators, the commissioner of revenue, and six public members.
