SB 509 would modify the individual income tax rate table.  The individual tax rate on personal income would be reduced by one-half of a percent over a period of years, starting in 2017.

Last year, Governor Nixon vetoed a similar measure that would bring tax relief to Missouri families and businesses.  Governor Nixon’s insatiable appetite for your money hasn’t lessened over the last year and AFP – Missouri anticipates he will veto SB 509.  To ensure you receive a small portion of your hard earned dollars back into your pockets, encourage your representative to override the veto!
