|Following a public hearing Monday night, the Taylorville City Council voted 7-2 (Martin Vota-no, Lee Lanzotti-no) in favor of an ordinance designating and approving the Taylorville Business Development District (BDD).|
The BDD in question allows the city to levy up to an additional one percent sales tax on any business located within it’s boundary. Titled vehicles, grocery food items, medications, and services are excluded from the tax. The tax does affect hotel operators, gasoline, and any items sold in conjunction with a services performed. Automobile service, for example, would not incur an additional tax on the service, but any products or parts sold as part of that service would be subject to the additional tax.
