Sherman voters have chance to repeal city's occupation tax

SHERMAN, Texas (KXII) -- Sherman voters will have the chance to repeal the city's occupation tax in November.

The current tax collects money from certain occupations. For example, the city said electricians, general contractors and plumbers have to pay an average $50 annually to register in the city, but other jobs like landscapers do not.

The tax brings in about $15,000 a year for Sherman.

The repeal will be on the ballot in the November election.
