Starting January 1, 2010, city and towns in Massachusetts can collect local taxes. This was a rule that allowed City and Towns to collect local sales tax which put in place from the Massachusetts State Legislator.
Framingham and Lexington now charge .75% for sales tax. This means that the consumer now pays 7% sales tax in Framingham and Lexington. Many merchants have posted signs to let consumers know of the change.
Currently there is no list of which city and towns have issued sales tax. This would be something that the Boston Globe or the Boston Herald should do.
