Research,using the internet,well I sit here with a bill from wal-mart 919 GIACONE DR.BENTON,ILLINOIS.It was mentioned in another thread that Sesser is the ONLY town in Southern Illinois with a 9% sales tax. I researched it on the internet. IT IS TRUE!!!!!! I also discovered that there are very few towns or cities in our state with a sales tax that high. I am outraged that the mayor and city councilmen would do that to the citizens of Sesser.
TAX 1 8.250%
TAX 2 1.000%
So if you can add Benton has a higher tax rate than Sesser,You are no Joe Friday, Just the facts
