Maryville officials might consider use tax

The recent announcement of a major online retailer collecting state sales tax means Maryville officials might consider a use tax in the future. Web giant Amazon began reporting state sales tax revenues to Missouri on Feb. 1.

Maryville currently doesn't employ a use tax, but City Manager Greg McDanel says it helps capture revenue on purchases outside the state. McDanel adds the city can't benefit from Amazon's tax revenue, or out-of-state vehicle purchases unless it has a use tax in place.

Maryville isn't the only local municipality to consider the issue. Mound City passed a use tax in 2016, while Tarkio voted the issue down four times in the last five years.
