Sales and Use Tax-Special Election May 4, 2024

Sales and Use Tax-Special Election Set for May 4, 2024:


Daingerfield voters will choose wheater or not to pass the Sales and Use Tax Proposition during a special election held May 4, 2024.

In the summer of 2023 the Daingerfield Economic Development Corporation brought a proposition to the City Council to adopt a sales and use tax that would split the revenue between a property tax discount for residents and the Daingerfield Economic Development Corporation Type B to fund community improvement projects in the City of Daingerfield. The City Council voted to place the proposition before the Citizens for approval at the May 4, 2024 election.

While this proposal does not introduce a new tax, it aims to modify the existing property tax discount, enabling a portion of the sales tax to be allocated to the Daingerfield Economic Development Corporation-Type B.

During their meeting on Monday February 12, 2024, the City Council approved an ordinance to hold a Sales and Use Tax Special Election on May 4, 2024, in conjunction with the election for Mayor At Large, Councilmember At Large, and Councilmember At Large.  There is one proposition on the Sales and Use Tax Ballot. Voters will have the option to vote "for" or "against" the proposition. 

The purpose of sales and use taxes is to generate revenue for state and local gfovernements. These taxes can fund various public services, such as infrastructure projects, education, healthcare, and other government functions.
