Zoo Tax To Be Placed On County Ballots

Indirect Tax, ONESOURCE, Sales and Use Tax August 30, 2011

Missouri supporters of a regional zoo district have gathered enough signatures to get a 1/8 sales tax on the ballot in Clay, Platte, and Cass counties.  However, county commissioners will still have to approve the initiative in these counties.  Jackson County had previously approved the proposal to be included on the November 8th ballot.  If approved in all 4 counties, zoo officials say this can raise $17 million a year.
