Tax issues on ballot

Three tax issues will be on the ballot in the Tuesday, Feb. 2, primary election ballot in Union County.

Sales tax votes are set in Union County and in the City of Anna. A property tax issue is on the ballot in Lick Creek School District 16.

County Proposition

The following countywide proposition is on the ballot:

"To pay for public facility purposes, being a new county courthouse, shall the County of Union be authorized to impose an increase on its share of the local sales tax by one percent (1%)?"

This would mean that a consumer would pay an additional one dollar ($1.00) in sales tax for every $100 of tangible personal property bought at retail.

A yes or no vote will be cast.

Anna Sales Tax Ref-erendum

Voters in the City of Anna will decide the outcome of the following question:

"Shall the City of Anna be authorized to impose an increase on its share of local sales taxes by 0.25%?"

A yes or no vote will be cast.

Lick Creek School District 16 Referendum

The question that will appear on the primary election ballot for all residents of Lick Creek Community Consolidated School District 16 follows:

“Shall the limiting rate under the Property Tax Extension Limitation Law for Lick Creek Community Consolidated School District #16, Union County, Illinois, be increased by an additional amount equal to .65% above the limiting rate for levy year 2008 and be equal to 2.374240% of the equalized assessed value of the taxable property therein for levy years 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013?”

A yes or no vote will be cast.
