Current Ballot Questions

On Tuesday, August 2, Lee's Summit voters will be presented with two ballot questions. The first is a question regarding the continuation of the Out-of-State Motor Vehicle Sales Tax. The Second question is asking voters to consider extending the ¼ cent Park sales tax for 15 years to fund future capital projects and operations. 

#1 "Out-of-State Motor Vehicle Sales Tax" 

Lee's Summit voters will be asked whether or not to discontinue the collection of the city's sales tax on motor vehicles, trailers, boats and outboard motors purchased from out-of-state dealers. 

In 2012, the Missouri Supreme Court Case (Street vs. the Director of Revenue), followed by subsequent state legislation (HB 184/SB182) in 2013, required cities without a use tax (such as Lee’s Summit, Blue Springs, Independence and other municipalities across the state) to receive voter approval to continue sales tax collections on purchases of out-of-state motor vehicles, trailers, boats and outboard motors.  Read more. 

 

#2 "Parks 1/4 Cent Sales Tax"

The second question to voters is to consider extending the ¼ cent Park sales tax for 15 years to fund future capital projects and operations.  Read more.
