A Parkville City Use Tax question was defeated on the April 2, 2013 election ballot in Platte County, which is in Missouri.

This measure would have authorized the City of Parkville to issue a use tax equal to the current sales tax of 1.5% to be applied to persons who make more than $2,000 in out of state purchases per year. This use tax would change as the local sales tax changed and would be repealed if the sales tax is repealed.[1]

Text of measure

Text of the question:

Shall the CITY OF PARKVILLE, MISSOURI, for the purpose of funding core municipal services including police, street maintenance, parks maintenance and other essential operations, impose a local use tax on the storage, use or consumption of tangible personal property purchased from out-of state vendors at the same rate as the total local sales tax rate, currently one and one half (1.5) percent?

If any local sales tax is repealed, reduced or raised by voter approval, said use tax shall also be repealed, reduced or raised by the same action.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 out-of-state vendors do not in total exceed two thousand dollars in any calendar year.
