Joplin's Spotlight

What is Proposition A?

Proposition A will be decided by voters in the August 2, 2016 election. Prop A focuses on whether voters want the City of Joplin to continue to collect a local sales tax on motor vehicles and other licensed property when purchased from other than licensed Missouri dealers, including dealers outside of the state of Missouri.

This is not a new tax. The City of Joplin currently collects this sales tax and has been collecting it for many years.  The question is on the ballot only as a result of the Missouri Supreme Court decision and the state legislation that followed.
