Marijuana sales tax will be voted on at Tuesday’s electionPosted by On

Tuesday is Springfield’s special election held solely to ask local residents whether the city should impose an additional 3% sales tax on recreational marijuana.

When Missouri voters approved the legalization of recreational marijuana in November 2022, a statewide 6% sales tax on recreational sales was established. The additional 3% was left up to local municipalities to impose with voter approval. In May, Springfield City Council approved the single-issue ballot going before voters.

The current sales tax within Springfield’s city limits is 8.1%. If the additional sales tax is approved, those purchasing recreational marijuana products in Springfield would pay a total 17.1% sales tax.
