Hearing shows review of entire Missouri tax code wanted
JEFFERSON CITY (AP) - Business groups say they support a proposed multi-year review of Missouri's tax code by a panel of experts.
Republican Sen. Bob Dixon, of Springfield, said an in-depth study of the tax code was desperately needed during a Senate committee hearing on the measure.
He says officials, tax attorneys, accountants and business owners, would study the code and produce a report as a starting point for an update of the code.
Dixon's proposal would also create an independent office to advocate for taxpayers and outline a right to fair and equal application of the tax code.
Lobbyists for business groups say those changes would help protect taxpayers.
The Senate committee has not voted on the proposal.
