Transportation Sales Tax

April 6th, 2014

WHAT’S A PENNY WORTH

Most people want the penny eliminated from the U.S. currency. Some people throw pennies away and some collect them.

The City of Brunswick needs all the pennies it can collect for revenues to offset the cost of operating the Street Fund.

Did you know that Brunswick only gets 1% of the Sales Tax 7.6% that is charged when you make purchases within the city limits of Brunswick, and did you know it is estimated that 80% of the purchases made within the city limits of Brunswick are made from non-residents.

If you were to make a purchase (example) of $10.00 at Casey’s, the sales tax amount would be an additional 76 cents but of that sales tax amount the city would only receive 10 cents from that transaction.

The new Transportation Sales Tax proposal, if passed, would add 05 cents on that same transaction, and the entire tax would then go to the city for street maintenance, paid by residents as well as non-residents.

ON APRIL 8, 2014, THE FOLLOWING QUESTION WILL APPEAR ON THE BALLOT:

SHALL THE CITY OF BRUNSWICK, IMPOSE A SALES TAX OF ONE-HALF OF ONE PERCENT FOR TRANSPORTATION RELATED PURPOSES FOR A PERIOD OF FIVE YEARS.

YES
NO
