A Randolph County 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 County of Randolph to impose a local use tax on out of state purchases totaling over $2,000 per year. This tax would have the same rate as the local sales tax of 1% and would change as the sales tax changed.[1]

Text of measure

Text of the question:

Shall the County of Randolph impose a local use tax on out of state purchases at the same

rate as the total local sales tax rate, currently 1.000%, provided that if the local sales tax rate is reduced or raised by voter approval, the local use tax rate shall also be 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.

The purpose of the proposal is to eliminate the current sales tax advantage that Non-Missouri vendors have over Missouri vendors.[1][2]
