Missouri County weighs options as 911 tax hits prepaid cell phones [telecom]

By Craig Montgomery

A new state sales tax on prepaid cellphones in Missouri to help fund

911 services may provide some welcome relief to Dent County, where a 911 surcharge on landlines is falling short.

The tax took effect Jan. 1.

The impact of the new tax isn't known yet, but it could help offset declining revenues from the 4 percent surcharge on CenturyLink landlines that once brought in $50,000 a year for 911 operations at the county sheriff's office.
