Local Use Tax Vote In My County Today

The language on the ballot reads as follows:

SHALL THE COUNTY OF GREENE IMPOSE A LOCAL USE TAX AT THE SAME RATE AS THE TOTAL LOCAL SALES TAX RATE, CURRENTLY ONE AND ONE QUARTER OF ONE PERCENT (1.25%), PROVIDED THAT IF THE LOCAL SALES TAX RATE IS REDUCED OR RAISED BY VOTER APPROVAL, THE LOCAL USE TAX RATE SHALL ALSO BE REDUCED OR RAISED BY THE SAME ACTION? A USE TAX RETURN SHALL NOT BE REQUIRED TO BE FILED BY PERSONS WHOSE PURCHASES FROM OUT-OF-STATE VENDORS DO NOT IN TOTAL EXCEED TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS ($2,000.00) IN ANY CALENDAR YEAR.


First of all, I did not even know there was anything to vote on today until a friend of mine working at a polling station said she'd only had two voters come in so far this morning. I looked up the ballot issue, and I've got some questions. Hopefully, someone from Missouri in here will know something about it.

1. Will the proceeds from this use tax be used for the same things that our sales tax goes to?

2. Who will be charged with assessing whether or not a customer has purchased over $2000 from a vendor in order to know if they're supposed to be filing a use tax return?

Thanks for any knowledge you can share with me.

From my understanding, the City of Springfield and the State of Missouri already do so, just not Greene County. From the looks of it, it's an issue for several counties.

My second question still stands though. Is it just the good faith of people reporting it? Seems like they'd have a better way of tracking it.
