Missouri – Union Reconsiders Use Tax

Union officials are moving forward with a plan to ask voters to consider a use tax at the April 7 municipal election. 

The topic of a use tax was discussed at the Jan. 6 personnel, finance and public works committee meeting. Aldermen debated the merits of the tax and if should be put on the ballot to be voted on this spring. 

Voters defeated the city’s request to implement a use tax in 2018.

Use tax is a sales tax on items purchased where no sales tax has been paid. The tax is intended to help capture revenue for out-of-state sales, including online purchases from out of state vendors and automobiles purchased outside of Missouri.
