Sunday, January 29, 2012
Fifty-one Cole County businesses have been spotlighted by the Missouri Department of Revenue for not paying taxes.
The businesses are on a “Who’s Not Paying” list kept by the department and updated weekly. It shows Missouri businesses that have had their sales tax licenses revoked for failure to pay either sales tax or the income tax withholdings of their employees, or both.
In most of Jefferson City, the sales tax rate is 7.725, with 4.225 going to the state.
“These aren’t instances of (being) one day late with the tax and you have a good record,” said Ted Farnen, spokesman for the Missouri Department of Revenue.
