Marion County Asks Voters To Extend 3/8 Sales Tax Permanently

Indirect Tax, ONESOURCE, Sales and Use Tax January 18, 2012

After some mechanical failures with older locks, doors, and windows in the incarceration facility in Palmyra, MO, Marion County is hoping to get a 3/8 sales tax extended permanently before it expires at the end of 2014.  The Marion County Sheriff’s Department is concerned with the safety of both the employees and inmates in a facility that is over 20 years old.  Currently, the funds are split between the county highway department and the sheriff’s department, who both have had to hold off on some bigger ticket purchases that they say are needed.
