Council faces routine agenda Tuesday

October 24, 2011

The Big Spring City Council will meet Tuesday evening to discuss a number of items, including whether to approve a tax exemption for goods in transit.

The agenda item — which will be heard slightly more than 24 hours after Howard County commissioners are expected to vote down the same exemption — will include a public hearing on the matter, according to city officials, as well as first reading of the exemption.

According to county officials, Texas legislature recently amended the goods-in-transit tax law to require taxing entities to decide whether or not they want to offer the exemption. Now, a taxing entity must decide whether to allow goods in transit to be taxed or not.
