The petition to repeal the Advertising and Promotions Tax in Texarkana Arkansas has been deemed unacceptable and will not be on the ballot this coming November.

The Arkansas side proposal to repeal the tax, often referred to as the "Hamburger Tax", will not be on the November ballot.

Without this tax it is believed the city of Texarkana Arkansas will suffer. Without the additional income that this brings the city Texarkana, Arkansas would not be able to provide events on Broad Street or Sparks in the Park, and will not be able to support the many local non-profits in the community that depend on this income to survive.
