THE MISSOURI USE TAX EXPLAINED, presented by Stuart Haynes, Policy and Membership Associate, Missouri Municipal League
Description: Amazon’s recent announcement that it will begin collecting Missouri taxes on purchases has generated lots of interest in the local option use tax. This webinar will start with the basics by reviewing how traditional sales taxes work and then build into the application of the use tax. The presentation will also focus on how revenue generated by out-of-state vehicle sales fits with the application of the use tax. Sources for estimating revenue from the use tax and resources for use tax campaigns will also be reviewed. Any municipal official interested in the working of the use tax should consider attending.
