Car Tax Legislation Passes House, Heads To Senate

The Missouri House approved a measure Wednesday to allow car buyers to trade in multiple vehicles to reduce sales tax responsibility when buying a newer model.

Gov. Mike Parson decided to call a special legislative session on the sales tax issue after a Supreme Court decision in June. He’s received repeated criticism from Democrats for calling the session for what some consider a minor issue.

“It makes no sense to prioritize tax breaks for few, over the lives of Missourians who die nearly every day due to gun violence,” said Minority Leader Crystal Quade, D-Springfield. “It makes no sense for the administration to continue to insist everything is fine with the state’s medicaid system when we continue to hear story after story from working Missourians with life threatening conditions who, without any explanation, lost their healthcare coverage.”

Parson has repeatedly saidthose issues are better suited for the regular session that begins in January.
