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

If approved, this measure would have authorized the City of Laurie to impose a use tax to be filed by all persons who make over $2,000 in out of state purchases per year. This tax would be at the same rate as the local sales tax of 2% and would change as the sales tax changed.[1]

Shall the City of Laurie impose a local use tax at the same rate as the local sales tax, currently at a

rate of 2 percent (2%) provided that, if any local sales tax is repealed, reduced or raised by voter approval, the respective local use tax also shall be repealed, reduced or raised by the same action?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 out-of-state vendors do not in total exceed two thousand dollars in any calendar year.[1][2]
