AFP – Missouri has been steadfast in its mission to bring tax relief to all Missourians.  The organization has traveled to nearly every part of the Show Me State and the message is clear, our families and businesses need tax relief.

Forward thinking governors all over the country have taken bold steps to reform their tax system while Missouri continue to struggle under an outdated tax code that imposes one of the highest marginal rates in the Midwest.

Americans for Prosperity has highlighted the substantial amounts that those tax reforms delivered, compared to the minor refunds that would be offered under the proposed Missouri tax reforms.
