Jefferson City, Mo. -- (1/18/2018) Governor Eric Greitens announced the principles for his plan for state tax reform on Thursday.
“For too long, our tax system has benefited special interests," he said. "Our tax plan puts working families first. We're simplifying the tax code so small shops can compete with big businesses. We’re cutting taxes on people that work hard so they can keep more money in their pocket. And we're doing it in a responsible, revenue-neutral way so we don't put our children in debt. It's the boldest state tax reform in America because it's tax reform for working families--not lobbyists and special interests,”
In the coming weeks, Governor Greitens and his team will release a detailed tax reform plan that follows the following principles:
The Governor will lay out the plan in further detail, work with the general assembly to translate these principles into draft legislation, and travel the state to promote these tax cuts for working families and small businesses in the coming weeks.
