MO Senator Seeks to End KC's Earnings Tax

Prime Buzz is reporting that Missouri state Senator, Brad Lager proposed an amendment that would end Kansas City and St. Louis's 1% earnings tax. He says the tax undermines economic development and believes it is taxation without representation.

“Someone living in Lee’s Summit pays a tax in Kansas City – I find that mind-boggling,” Lager said.

The amendment calls for the 1% earnings tax to be phased out in 2018. The MO senate gave preliminary approval and the house passed a similar measure a couple of months ago.

It is definitely taxation without representation. It's an absurd tax. I refuse to live in KC, MO because of it.
