Vote This Tuesday On Kansas City Zoo Tax

Indirect Tax, ONESOURCE, Sales and Use Tax November 8, 2011

Voters in Jackson and Clay Counties take a vote this Tuesday on whether to increase the sales tax for the Kansas City Zoo.  The zoo, which has increased in attendance this year, would be adding both new exhibits, and more importantly, new jobs.  About 1000 construction jobs and twice as many zoo employees would be expected.  Should the increase pass, adult admissions in the voting counties would be half priced, along with more educational programs offered to schools.
