    HI Zachary, Thank you for your post. We assign both of these items to our “Sales Tax” category, which falls under (Taxes on Production and Imports or TOPI). The tax impact report will, therefore, not give any indication about the relative shares of the two types of tax. Only the net change would be visible. This would be tax collected not tax rates. The overall magnitude of TOPI: Sales Tax will be a projection of 1-year lagged BEA REA state by industry estimates of TOPI to a single national control total for TOPI. In the first release of 2013 data, local levels of sales tax collection are projected based on data from the 2011 Annual Survey of Government Finance (the 2012 data were not available), so the change in the tax code won’t be directly reflected in the tax impact report.
