City of Joplin - PROPOSITION ACTION
In an attempt to eliminate the un-fair advantage enjoyed by out-of-state vendors over local vendors, shall the City of Joplin impose a local use tax at the same rate as the total local sales tax rate, currently three and one-eighth percent (31/8%), provided that if any local sales tax is repealed, reduced, or raised by voter approval, the local use tax rate shall also be repealed, reduced, or raised by the same action?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 ($2,000.00) in any calendar year.
