Text of measure

Language on the ballot:[1]

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 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.[2]
