No Sales and Use Taxes on Guns and Ammo Purchases? A Missouri Lawmaker Wants to Make it Happen

(Missourinet) A State Representative does not want customers to pay state and local sales and use taxes when buying new or used firearms in Missouri. Republican Nick Schroer, from the St. Louis suburb of O’Fallon, says his proposal would also exempt firearm components, ammunition, and tools and components of making ammo. He says high sales taxes can drive people in the wrong direction.

Schroer says the bill currently does not include a sales tax exemption for gun safes and components that make guns fire rapidly. He says how much this would cost the state in sales tax revenue is unknown at this time.
