In January of 2013, Americans for Prosperity Missouri, launched an effort to assemble information on all types of tax increases, fee increases, bonding measures, use taxes, etc. on April ballots across Missouri. In April of 2013, we found Missourian’s voted on over 280 proposed tax increases in local elections. A staggering 80% of Missouri counties had at least one form of a tax increase proposal on the ballot.
Since the taxpayer is not an endless money supply for government, we launched the Municipal Project again, in 2014, to highlight all the local tax increase proposals on the upcoming April 2014 ballot.
Below you will see an interactive map. Scroll over your county to see what tax increases legislators wanted to impose on you this past April, or view our detailed list of tax increases by county.
