JEFFERSON CITY, MO – A Missouri bill proposing tax relief is being considered by the House.

State Representative, Dean Dohrman (dist 51), says the ideas in the bill follow a months long investigation into the Missouri Dept of Revenue. A Government Oversight Committee found a change in tax withholding tables, which was deemed an error. It also found the department failed to inform Missourians regarding the changes, which led to smaller tax refunds due to more money being withheld from paychecks.

The bill blocks late payment penalties until year’s end, and waives interest for one month. To qualify, individuals would have to file on or before April 15.
