Voters in two cities had the chance to vote on a prepared food and beverage tax November 8th, sometimes referred to as a “hamburger tax,” but more commonly known as the Advertising and Promotion Tax. In Benton, voters approved an extension to their current 1.5% A&P tax by a large margin, which will remain in effect until the $7.8 million convention center is paid off. In Fort Smith, however, voters handily rejected a new 1% A&P tax, which was the second time residents had seen this tax. Earlier in the year this tax was levied, and then soon after repealed due to legal conflicts.
