Round Rock Chamber Makes Recommendations On Local Option Sales and Use Tax

The Round Rock Chamber submitted comments to the House Committee on Ways & Means. The comments focus on the Committee’s Interim Charge #3: Study the role of the local option sales and use tax. The chamber strongly opposes changing local sales tax sourcing from being origin-based to destination-based.

Such a change will result in:

  • Weakening Texas’ strong, longstanding, and nationally recognized business climate
  • Undermining longstanding economic development agreements between municipalities and business partners
  • Creating a significant burden for entrepreneurs and small businesses.

For these reasons, the Round Rock Chamber wholeheartedly supports maintaining an origin-based local sales tax sourcing structure.
