Correction: City’s Revenue Division reminds taxpayers about sales tax rate changes
New tax proceeds provide consistent funding for the parks system, not stormwater
The City of Kansas City, Mo., reminds taxpayers that new sales tax rates took effect Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2013.
In August 2012, voters authorized an increase in the sales tax rate by one half percent (1/2%) and dedicated the proceeds to the maintenance and operation of parks, parkways, boulevards and community centers. These proceeds will not be used for stormwater, as incorrectly published earlier today.
To learn specific rate details, taxpayers may visit the Missouri Department of Revenue’s newly released list of all state and local sales and use tax rate changes, located at http://dor.mo.gov/pdf/rates/2013/jan2013.pdf.
Media inquiries and other requests for information should be directed to Commissioner of Revenue Mari Ruck at 816-513-1106.
