Sales Tax

Missouri is close to requiring out-of-state companies to collect sales taxes from Missouri residents buying from them online. The state House has sent back to the Senate a bill that would include income tax cuts to help offset the expected revenue increase. Representative J. Eggleston of northwest Missouri’s Maysville, carried the bill in the House.

 

 

During debate, St. Louis Democrat Steve Butz talked about the proposal that would include income tax cuts to help offset the projected sales tax revenue increase.
