When the calendar moved over to 2019, the new Business District tax in Taylorville was put into effect. Taylorville Mayor Bruce Barry shared with Regional Radio News the new 1% tax, and where it is going to be included.
The tax is only in effect in the Business Development District, and Barry outlines exactly where that is.
It has taken quite some time for the BDD to begin to take place as well as the new sales tax, but Barry explains his reasons on why the city will benefit.
The tax was put into effect January 1st.
