Crystal City will place a “use tax” on the April ballot

(Crystal City) A few Jefferson County municipalities will be placing a “use tax” on the April election ballot, which will locally tax residents that shop online. Crystal City City Administrator Jason Eisenbeis says it’s not something the city wants to do per se, but it’s something that needs to happen due to the way most people shop nowadays.

Other cities will likely be placing a use tax on the April election ballot as well. One of those is Festus, as they held a city council meeting earlier this week to finalize the ballot language and state what the monies generated from the tax would be used for.
