Use tax good for city, and local businesses

     Next Tuesday, November 5, the St. James City Council has put Proposition A on the ballot. This allows the city to collect a use tax. The legal language states the revenue will be used for the operation and improving the no-kill animal shelter that we have in St. James. This is the only no-kill shelter in the area. We call this a use tax because it is a tax from online purchases and will be collected by those companies that have a presence in Missouri.
