Effort to Eliminate the Sales Tax on Food Moves Forward


An effort in Jefferson City to lower your grocery bill moved forward this week.

State Rep. Mary Elizabeth Coleman. Coleman’s HB 1992, which would eliminate Missouri’s sales tax on most food sales, received the approval of the House Ways and Means Committee this week and will soon be on its way to the House floor for discussion.

Coleman says HB 1992 would save Missourians approximately $144 million each year on their grocery purchases.

In a release the Arnold Republican said “It’s time to put an end to this regressive tax that does the most harm to the poorest Missourians. I urge all of my colleagues in the legislature to work with me to provide Missouri families with substantive tax relief that will help them to make ends meet during these extremely difficult times.”
