Will Missouri Voters Approve a Sales Tax Increase?


 Missouri considers state sales tax rate change.

On November 8, 2014, Missouri voters will be asked to approve an increase to the state sales and use tax rate. Lawmakers are seeking a constitutional amendment that would increase the Missouri sales tax rate by 0.75% for a period of 10 years. If approved, the approximately $530 million/year generated by the tax increase would fund a variety of transportation projects. The tax would not apply to the retail sale of food.
