TUCSON - Beginning Tuesday you will pay more at places like the grocery store, the mall, and restaurants.
The state sales tax will increase one-percent. In Tucson, shoppers will pay 9.1 percent instead of 8.1 percent.
It's part of Prop. 100, which recently passed in May's special election.
The tax is expected to generate $1 billion per year, for three years.
The city of Tucson is also considering a sales tax increase. In July, the city council will decide whether or not to include a half-percent sales tax proposal on the November ballot.
