The City of Akutan levies a 1.5 percent (one and one-half percent) sales tax approved by voters.
The tax applies to all raw seafood sales and importation of property from outside the city for processing.
The tax covers both raw seafood products delivered by the seller to a buyer in the city; and to raw seafood products delivered by means of a tender to a processor of raw seafood products for processing in the city.
The City of Akutan requires seafood buyers and processors to complete and file a Registration of Sellers and Buyers as Tax Collectors prior to conducting business each calendar year. Also, a City Sales Tax Return must be completed and filed each quarter.
