Grundy County voters are to decide in April whether to keep an existing county tax on out-of-state purchases and when privately-sold vehicles are licensed.

In response to a 2012 Missouri Supreme Court ruling, Governor Jay Nixon last July signed legislation to re-instate, in Missouri, local taxes on the out-of-state purchases and
privately-sold vehicle sales. However, counties and cities that previously had not passed a local option use tax, must ask voters by the year 2016 whether they want to keep or repeal it.

Grundy and Jackson are the only counties in north central, northwest, and west central Missouri that have not passed a county local option sales tax. Statewide, there are 56 counties which have passed the tax and 58 that have not. Those which have not approved the tax, are required to hold an election by 2016 to allow voters to decide whether to keep the tax or repeal it.

The local option sales tax equals the local sales tax. The amount in Grundy County is 1 1/2%.

Voters last April defeated proposals by Grundy County and the City of Trenton to restore local use taxes that had been collected before the supreme court ruling in Greene County.

Collection of the tax later was restored because of action last year by the legislature and the governor's signature. Now, the Grundy County Commission is asking voters to maintain that tax.

Presiding Commissioner Rick Hull spoke with KTTN's Dave Sounsell.
