Businesses want action on Missouri’s inconsistent, hostile tax policy
During a capitol press conference on March 30, leaders in the Missouri House and Senate pledged to make tax policy reform a priority during the second half of the legislative session. Action in this area would address a troubling area of state government that is hurting business growth and impacting Missouri’s efforts to create jobs.
According to a new Gallup survey, Missouri businesses are widely displeased with Missouri’s existing tax policy. The survey showed that only 21 percent of business leaders agree that Missouri offers consistent tax policy, with only one in five businesses agreeing that tax policy is stable enough to allow for year-to-year growth planning. In addition, only 17 percent said they were satisfied with Missouri tax policy. The results come from a survey of more than 1,000 Missouri business leaders. The survey was commissioned by the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry and released in February 2015.
