What does your vote mean?
'YES' Vote'NO' Vote
Voting 'Yes' means your overall sales tax rate would stay the same at 9.75%, and the 3/4 of a cent special sales tax would continue until 2032. The City of De Soto would be allowed to use the approximately $600,000 generated each year to fund the City's infrastructure projects.
Voting 'No' means the sales tax would expire in July 2022; the City would have to consider alternative ways to fund the capital project improvements as the projects funded by the sales tax are integral to the City’s basic infrastructure and must be done, regardless of funding source.  
City services are generally funded by either property taxes, sales taxes or user fees.
