  68.245.  Levy of sales and use tax authorized — ballot language — collection of tax, deposit of moneys — repeal of tax. — 1.  For the purposes of providing funds to pay all, or any portion of, the qualified project costs associated with any approved project, subsequent to the establishment of a district pursuant to this act, and subsequent to the circuit court's certification of a question regarding any proposed sales and use tax needed to fund a project, a port authority may levy by resolution a districtwide sales and use tax on all retail sales made in such district which are subject to taxation pursuant to sections 144.010 to 144.525, except sales of motor vehicles, trailers, boats or outboard motors, and sales to or from public utilities.  Any sales and use tax imposed pursuant to this section may be imposed in increments of one-eighth of one percent, up to a maximum of one percent; except that, no resolution adopted pursuant to this section shall be final nor shall it take effect until the qualified voters approve, by mail-in ballot election conducted in accordance with section 68.250, the circuit court's certified question regarding such proposed sales and use tax provided that such resolution shall be final and no mail-in ballot election shall be required where the port authority is the owner of all of the real property within the proposed district.  If a majority of the votes cast by the qualified voters on the proposed sales and use tax are in favor of the sales and use tax, then the resolution shall become effective.  If a majority of the votes cast by the qualified voters are opposed to the sales and use tax, then the resolution seeking to levy the sales and use tax shall be deemed null and void on the date on which the election may no longer be challenged pursuant to section 68.255.

  2.  The ballot shall be substantially in the following form:

­

Shall the ______ (insert name of district) impose a districtwide sales and use tax at the maximum rate of ______ (insert amount) for a period of ______ (insert number) years from the date on which such tax is first imposed for the purpose of providing revenue for ______ (insert general description of project or projects)?
☐ YES ☐ NO
If you are in favor of the question, place an "X" in the box opposite "YES". If you are opposed to the question, place an "X" in the box opposite "NO".

­

  3.  Within ten days after the qualified voters have approved the imposition of the sales and use tax, the port authority shall, in accordance with section 32.087, notify the director of revenue.  The sales and use tax authorized by this section shall become effective on the first day of the second calendar quarter after the director of revenue receives notice of the adoption of such sales and use tax.

  4.  The director of revenue shall collect any sales and use tax pursuant to section 32.087.

  5.  All revenue received by the port authority from a sales and use tax imposed pursuant to this section which is designated for a specific project shall be deposited into a special trust fund to be expended solely for such purpose, or to the port authority's treasury if such sums are not designated.

  6.  In each district in which a sales and use tax is imposed pursuant to this section, every retailer shall add such additional tax imposed by the port authority to such retailer's sale price, and when so added such tax shall constitute a part of the purchase price, shall be a debt of the purchaser to the retailer until paid and shall be recoverable at law in the same manner as the purchase price.

  7.  The penalties provided in sections 144.010 to 144.525 shall apply to violations of this section.

  8.  The port authority shall repeal by resolution the continuation of any sales and use tax imposed pursuant to this section when all obligations of the port improvement project have been met, unless the sales and use tax in any way secures outstanding obligations of the port improvement project or covers ongoing expenses the port authority has incurred to pay qualified project costs of any of the approved port improvement project.

  9.  Upon the expiration or termination of any sales and use tax adopted pursuant to this section, any funds remaining in the special trust fund shall continue to be used solely for the specific purpose designated in the ballot adopted by the qualified voters.  Any funds in such special trust fund which are not needed for current expenditures or obligations of the port improvement project may be invested by the port authority pursuant to applicable laws relating to the investment of other port authority funds and the port authority may use such funds to further the purpose of a port authority as provided in section 68.020.
