Use tax question to appear on April ballot

January 29, 2015 Local No Comments

After approving the new judicial plans, Cape Girardeau County officials are trying to find a way to pay for a new courthouse.  Commissioners are putting a one percent use tax on the April ballot to cover the cost.  Presiding Commissioner, Clint Tracy tells KZIM KSIM the tax would not impact every purchase, like a sales tax or property tax would.

Tracy hopes they can spend the next few months dispelling rumors about a use tax.  Consumers are required to file a return with the Missouri Department of Revenue only if their untaxed purchases from out-of-state vendors in a calendar year equal more than $2,000.
