  2.  The ballot of submission shall contain, but need not be limited to, the following language:

­

Shall the city of ______ (name of city) impose a sales tax of ______ (insert amount) for the purpose of funding medical care for the medically indigent?
☐ 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".

If a majority of the votes cast on the proposal by the qualified voters voting thereon are in favor of the proposal, then the ordinance or order shall be in effect, beginning the first day of the second calendar quarter following its adoption.  If a majority of the votes cast by the qualified voters voting are opposed to the proposal, then the governing body of the city shall have no power to impose the sales tax authorized in this section unless and until the governing body of the city shall again have submitted another such proposal and the proposal is approved by the requisite majority of the qualified voters voting thereon.  However, in no event shall a proposal pursuant to this section be submitted to the voters sooner than twelve months from the date of the last proposal submitted pursuant to this section.

  3.  After the effective date of any tax imposed under the provisions of this section, the director of revenue shall perform all functions incident to the administration, collection, enforcement, and operation of the tax in the same manner as provided in sections 94.500 to 94.550, and the director of revenue shall collect in addition to the sales tax for the state of Missouri the additional tax authorized under the authority of this section.  The tax imposed pursuant to this section and the tax imposed under the sales tax law of the state of Missouri shall be collected together and reported upon such forms and under such administrative rules and regulations as may be prescribed by the director of revenue.  Except as modified in this section, all provisions of sections 32.085 and 32.087 shall apply to the tax imposed under this section.

  4.  The sales tax may be approved at a rate of one-eighth of one percent, one-fourth of one percent, three-eighths of one percent, one-half of one percent, five-eighths of one percent, three-fourths of one percent, seven-eighths of one percent, or one percent of the receipts from the sale at retail of all tangible personal property and taxable services at retail within any city adopting such tax, if such property and services are subject to taxation by the state of Missouri under the provisions of sections 144.010 to 144.525.

  5.  All revenue generated from the tax authorized under the provisions of this section shall be deposited into the "Medical Indigence Sales Tax Fund", which is hereby created in the state treasury.  The fund moneys shall be distributed to the city from which the revenue was generated for the sole purpose of funding medical care for the medically indigent, as that term is defined in this section.  Once the tax authorized by this section is abolished or terminated by any means, all funds remaining in the fund shall be used solely for that purpose.
