Prop. 1 internet tax election results for Columbia, Boone County

Passage of the internet use tax, which will go before Columbia and Boone County voters April 5, would make purchases from online vendors located outside of the state subject to the same sales tax rates as purchases made from local vendors.

Columbia and Boone County voters on Tuesday received the chance to approve or reject passage of an internet use tax.

Polls closed at 7 p.m. Tuesday. Check back here for updates as results roll in.

Proposition 1 comprised two parts: one to impose a Boone County use tax and the other to impose a City of Columbia use tax.

The use tax would make purchases from online vendors located outside of the state subject to the same sales tax rates as purchases made from local vendors. 

The city use tax would be 2%, equal to the sales tax already imposed within city limits.

The county use tax would be at the rate of 1.75%.

If both are passed, residents living within Columbia city limits would be subject to both taxes for a combined rate of 3.75%.
