JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – A Missouri lawmaker wants to recruit more law enforcement officers to the state by eliminating state income taxes for officers but, in turn, could cost the state millions.
There are currently around 14,000 law enforcement officers in Missouri. Rep. David Gregory (R-St. Louis) proposed legislation for this upcoming session for all officers to be excluded from paying state income taxes up to $100,000.
“One of the most important things in Missouri is to have safe streets, safe places to live with good, safe police officers and that’s what this bill accomplishes,” Gregory said.
