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

This measure authorized the County of Camden to impose a use tax to be paid by all persons who make over $2,000 in out of state purchases per year. This tax would have the same rate as the current sales tax of 1.25% and would change as the sales tax changed.[1]

Text of measure

Text of the question:

This text is quoted verbatim from the original source. Any inconsistencies are attributed to the original source.

Shall the County of Camden impose a local use tax on out-of-state purchases at the same rate as

the total local sales tax rate, currently one and one quarter percent (1.25%), 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]
