A Huntsville City Out-Of-State Use Tax question was approved on the April 2, 2013 election ballot in Randolph County, which is in Missouri.

This measure authorized the City of Clark to impose a local out of state use tax at the same rate as the local sales tax of 1.5%. This tax would change as the sales tax changed.[1]

Text of measure

Text of the question:

Shall the City of Huntsville, Missouri impose a local use tax on out-of-state purchases at the

same rate as the total local sales tax rate, currently at a rate of One and One-Half Percent (1.5%), provided that if the local sales tax rate is repealed, reduced or raised by voter approval, the local use tax rate shall also be repealed, reduced or raised by the same action? A use tax return shall not be required to be filed by persons whose purchases from outof-state vendors do not in total exceed two thousand dollars in any calendar year. The purpose of this proposal is to eliminate the current sales tax advantage that Non-Missouri vendors have over Missouri vendors and to correct a typographical error in the proposal passed by voters in the November 6, 2012 general election, which incorrectly stated that the current sales tax rate is One Percent (1%).[1][2]
