City Sale Tax Ordinance Revision
The City Council is reviewing proposed revisions to the City’s Sales Tax Ordinance. The purpose of the revision is to capture additional tax revenue from online sales, specifically Amazon who is already remitting tax to the City. Also, to capture additional tax revenue from various services like guided duck hunts. The major shift in this ordinance is moving from specifying what is taxed to specifying the exemptions or what is not taxed. This will allow the City to tax all goods and services within the City's jurisdiction and will allow the City Council working with City administration to exempt certain businesses, sectors of the population, and those that are legally exempt from paying sales tax.
