Marshall City Council set a special meeting at 5:15 p.m. Monday, Jan. 14, to discuss the possibility of placing a city use tax on the ballot.
Councilman Dan Brandt raised the subject, citing the county's success in November getting voter approval for a use tax.
Use taxes are applied to items purchased out of state where local sales taxes cannot be applied. Businesses and consumers pay either the sales tax or use tax, as appropriate, not both. And the rate of the use tax is pegged to the sales tax rate.
Councilman Ron Duvall agreed with the need for the meeting.
"I think it's time we got on the wagon here," he said. "We're missing out."
