Sales taxes increase in Springfield


Springfield – Soon you will pay more in sales tax in Springfield.

Aldermen voted late last night to increase the city's sales tax, by half a percent. That means you will pay 8.5% sales tax in most of the city. However, the "Legacy Pointe" Development Area, which includes Scheels, already has a 9% sales tax.

The money generated by the tax will be used repay an 86 million dollar bond to finance the city's 3 year infrastructure program.
