Text of measure

Language on the ballot:[1]

Shall the County of Buchanan impose a local use tax on out-of-state purchases at the same rate as the local sales tax, currently one and one-tenth percent (1.1%), in order to eliminate the current sales tax advantage that out-of-state merchants have over local merchants; provided that if any local sales tax is reduced or raised by voter approval, the local use tax shall also be reduced or raised by the same action? (Note: A use tax return shall not be filed by persons whose purchases from out-of-state merchants do not in total exceed two thousand dollars per calendar year.)[2]
