Conservative push to eliminate Missouri's personal property tax hits turbulence, falls short

JEFFERSON CITY ó A conservative bid to scrap Missouriís personal property tax on vehicles and other items ran into bipartisan opposition and failed Monday.

The measure, which would cost local governments an estimated $1.4 billion in revenue, would bring the state in line with 29 others that do not have the tax.

But, it failed to advance after hours of debate and closed-door negotiations.

Sen. Bill Eigel, R-Weldon Spring, who is sponsoring the plan, said the reduction in revenue would be softened by phasing out the tax over time.
