Prepared food tax moves to full council
JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - An ordinance that would levy a 2 percent tax on prepared food in the city of Jonesboro moves to the full city council.
The Jonesboro Finance & Administration Council Committee introduced ORD-21:046 Tuesday night in a meeting.
The Jonesboro Advertising and Promotions Commission requested the tax because of interest to bring a sports complex to Jonesboro.
The tax would apply to any business that sells prepared food or drinks in the city through a 2 percent tax on gross revenues.
If approved by the Jonesboro City Council, the tax would begin starting Jan. 1, 2022.
