AFP-MO Praises Gov. Parson’s Call for Tax Relief for Families and Small Businesses

Aug 22, 2022 by AFP

Jefferson City, MissouriAmerican’s for Prosperity-Missouri (AFP-MO) today endorsed Governor Parson’s call to the legislature to reduce the tax burden on Missouri’s families and small businesses. Currently, the Missouri income tax is 5.3 percent. The Governor has proposed a rate of 4.8 percent.

AFP-MO State Director Jeremy Cady praised Gov. Parson’s after his announcement of a special session to reform the state’s income tax:

“We have been consistently committed to lowering the tax burden on Missouri’s families. But for a handful of taxpayer champions in the legislature this session, we were the only vocal supporter of reducing the state’s income tax. I’m thankful Governor Parson has finally decided to also make this relief his priority as well.”

“Unfortunately, the Governor also decided to include several tax credits for special interest groups and corporations in his call to special session. These are examples of policies that favor the well-connected with a handout over the average Missourian. We call on the legislature to work together to advance tax reform, but leave out special favors for select interests.”
