The Missouri State Senate has passed legislation that would eliminate tax breaks for low-income seniors and individuals with disabilities living in rental properties. According to Jessica Macy, the executive director of the Boone County Council on Aging, this tax break allows seniors to pay their bills and improve their quality of life.

“This is really money that really helps offset their everyday living expenses,” Macy said.

Macy said the tax break allows seniors to support local businesses by using their money to purchase necessities, such as groceries and prescriptions.
