The tax would be calculated as a percentage of gross retail and/or entertainment receipts of a business as defined in Ordinance No. 1387.

Returns must be submitted to the City each month. The tax is due on or before the last day of each month, calculated based on gross receipts of the immediately preceding month. For example, tax due on the gross receipts for November would be due by December 31st. Mailed returns postmarked by the last day of the month will be considered timely filed.
As reimbursement for any additional administrative costs and expenses connected with the tax, at the time of monthly payment, a business may elect to withhold 2% of the amount that is otherwise due and payable to the City.
Returns and tax payments shall be filed and paid by (i) hand delivery or by United States mail, properly addressed, postage prepaid and postmarked no later than the last day of the appropriate month, or (ii) by electronic filing and payment by Automated Clearing Housing or Credit Card no later than the last day of the appropriate month.

Yes, if your pet has been prescribed a medication that is also used to treat a human condition, you may receive a discount on the medication by taking the prescription to a participating retail pharmacy.
Not usually. However, discounts are available for many diabetic supplies.
This is not insurance; it is a prescription discount program. The card provides immediate discounts at participating retail pharmacies. Upon presenting your card to the pharmacist, you will pay the lower of a discounted price or the pharmacy’s regular retail price. There are no claim forms to fill out and no limit to the number of times you can use the card. These discounts are available only at participating retail pharmacies.
Your card cannot be used in conjunction with other insurance. However, you are encouraged to use your card to purchase prescriptions anytime they are not covered by your insurance plan.
Yes, you can use your prescription discount card anytime you need to purchase a prescription that is not covered by your Medicare prescription plan or any other insurance.

Yes. You will receive the best price available to you through this program at the participating pharmacy. On occasion, pharmacies will price a particular medication lower than the discount rate provided by the card. If that occurs, you will pay the lower price.
Because prices can vary by location, only the actual pharmacy can tell you the exact price of the prescription. However, you can look up an estimated price for medications at Care Mark or call toll free 1-888-620-1749.
Drug prices may vary from pharmacy to pharmacy. Even pharmacy chains have different prices in their stores depending on the population they are servicing. Additionally, manufacturers’ drug prices change periodically.
Because a pharmacy’s retail price or usual and customary charge can differ greatly by pharmacy, your exact percentage of savings may vary depending on the prescription drug and the price you have paid before.
