Gov. Mike Parson is crediting the growth in Missouri to President Donald Trump’s 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
In a news release, Parson’s office said 64% of Missouri taxpayers have seen an increase in take-home pay. That’s about $6 billion more than last year around the state.
“More Missourians are going back to work, seeing an increase in take-home pay, and keeping more of their hard-earned money,” said Parson. “Missouri conservatives have long championed the fundamental principle of reducing the tax burden for individuals of all incomes.”
