Missouri Sales Tax Rate Changes, October 2015


 See? Big.

Missouri likes it big. The Gateway Arch is a very big arch. The billion gallon lake that was once Bonne Terre Mine is a very big subterranean lake. The world’s largest ball of twine—also very big, also in Missouri. You get the idea.

It stands to reason that when the Missouri Department of Revenue announces local sales and use tax rate changes, the list is often very big. No puny one change announcements here.

So take a BIG deep breath. The following county sales and use tax changes take effect October 1, 2015:

  • Christian County: the existing ¼% county law enforcement sales tax is extended and broadened to sales of domestic utilities.

    • Salem: new 3/8% city storm water/local parks sales tax.
