Proposed Macoupin County Public Safety Tax

Thu, 10 Jan 2013 10:01:03 CST
The Macoupin County Board has adopted an ordinance that seeks voter approval on a public safety tax in Macoupin County. By a vote of 10-8, the Board votged to put the following question to the voters: "To pay for Public Safety purposes, shall Macoupin County be authorized to impose an increase on its share of local sales taxes by 0.75 percent. This would mean that a consumer would pay an additional 75 cents in sales tax for every $100.00 of tangible personal property bought at retail in Macoupin County."

According to Board Chairman Mark Dragovich, if voters were to approve the tax, he would lead the effort on the Board to freeze the county‘s portion of property taxes for all Macoupin County residents over the next two years.

If a Public Safety Tax were to be implemented, it would not apply to most grocery store food purchases, prescription and non-prescription drugs,and medical appliances. It would also not apply to tanigle personal property that is titled or registered, such as cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles, trailers, and other items that are currently exempt from sales tax such as farm machinery.

If approved by voters, the tax is estimated to generate between $500,000 and $800,000 annually for public safety.
