CITY OF DUNDEE,
YAMHILL COUNTY OREGON
IMPOSES CITY TAX ON MARIJUANA RETAILER’S SALE OF MARIJUANA ITEMS
Shall City impose a tax on the sale of marijuana items by a marijuana retailer in the City?
Under current state law, a city council may adopt an ordinance to be referred to the voters of the city imposing up to a three percent tax or fee on the sale of marijuana items in the city by a licensed marijuana retailer.
If this measure is adopted, it would approve a Dundee Ordinance imposing a tax on the sale of marijuana items in the city by a licensed marijuana retailer. The tax amount would be the maximum amount allowed under state law, which is currently three percent (3%). The tax would be collected at the point of sale and remitted by the marijuana retailer. The measure also includes provisions regarding collection, administration and enforcement of the tax.
