Voters reject additional tax on area restaurants

TISHOMINGO COUNTY — Voters in Tishomingo County have defeated a proposed 1 percent additional tourism tax.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports complete but unofficial returns showed 4,158 people voted against the measure to 3,268 in favor.

Supporters proposed the tourism tax as an economic and job development engine for the county. It would have imposed an additional 1 percent tax on restaurants with 25 seats or more.

The county currently has a 2 percent tourism tax that applies to hotel and motel rooms, and supports efforts of the Tishomingo County Tourism Council in marketing and promoting the recreation areas and other attractions available to visitors in the county.
