Notice Regarding City Use Tax
The City of Riverside, Missouri previously adopted a use tax, which is currently in effect. A use tax is the equivalent of a sales tax on purchases made from out-of-state vendors by in-state buyers and on certain taxable business transactions. The use tax rate for the City of Riverside is currently 6.6 percent which is equal to the total local sales tax rate. Certain purchases from out-of-state vendors will become subject to an expansion of the use tax effective on January 1, 2023, as provided by state law. If 15% of the city’s registered voters voting in the last gubernatorial election submit a petition calling for an election to repeal the city’s use tax to the board of aldermen, the question will be submitted to the voters. If any local sales tax is repealed or the rate is reduced or raised by voter approval, the local use tax rate shall also be deemed to be repealed, reduced, or raised by the same action.
I, Robin Kincaid, City Clerk for the City of Riverside, Missouri, certify that the foregoing is, to the best of my knowledge and belief, correct. Dated this 8th day of September, 2021.
