Missouri NAACP Opposes Income Tax Cuts in Special Session

The Missouri NAACP is among the groups opposed to the state income tax cut plan in the special legislative session. 

The Missouri Senate passed a bill Wednesday that would lower the top income tax rate to four-point-nine-five percent in 2023 and phase in lower rates if state revenue continues to grow.   

NAACP president Rod Chapel says in a statement, “our women and children, blue collar workers, government employees, Black citizens and other minorities are once again ignored in this quest to aid the wealthy.”  

Republican Senator Lincoln Hough of Springfield says anyone who makes under 14 thousand dollars a year would not have any income tax liability.
