How is the ten cent tax monitored?

A retail store must record on a customer’s receipt the number of disposable bags (plastic, paper, or other material including but not limited to compostable material) provided to a customer and the total amount of tax charged for each type of bag. Please note self-checkout and online orders should also be subject to the tax.

The Village reserves the right to request that a retail store make its records available for compliance audits and can assess penalties for failure to comply with the ordinance.
