Greitens Calls For Tax Cuts For Most Missourians
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. —
Governor Eric Greitens says he wants to lower income taxes for most Missourians and eliminate those taxes for the state's lowest earners.
Greitens in a Thursday press release announced the pillars of his tax plan. Greitens says he wants to cut taxes for anyone earning more than about $9,000 a year, which covers most Missourians.
The governor also wants to eliminate taxes for 380,000 low-income workers and reduce corporate taxes.
Spokesman Parker Briden says the governor is still working on details of the plan.
The release of the tax plan and a planned tour to promote it were delayed after the governor last week admitted to having an extramarital affair in 2015.
