Cass County Government currently has a one-half percent local sales tax authorized by county voters for flood control measures.
Local sales tax collections are administered under contract with the Office of North Dakota State Tax Commissioner who serves as a resource for local businesses on sales tax collection and reporting.
Cass County citizens voted to Amend Article 9 of the Cass County Home Rule Charter to authorize collection of a one-half of one percent (1/2%) sales, use, and gross receipts tax to be used for the engineering, land purchase, construction, and maintenance of a Red River Diversion and other flood control measures or the payment of special assessments or debt incurred for a Red River Diversion and other flood control measures as authorized by the Cass County Commission.
The county currently uses 9% of the sales tax collected to fund local projects outside the proposed Red River Diversion boundaries. For a list of those projects, look at the County Project Summary tab on the expense report referenced below.
