Progress Missouri is seeking to reward Missouri state representatives who decide to support Governor Jay Nixon’s veto of an expensive tax bill.
Critics of the legislation say the tax bill would reduce general revenue in the state, and cut funds from schools and communities, while increasing taxes on prescription drugs.
State representatives who vote to override the veto will be entered in Progress Missouri’s lottery. One representative’s name will be drawn, and an aerial banner will be flown over a high school or college football game in his or her home district.
The Callaway County collector’s office will not be mailing resident’s tax bills on time.
Computer glitches in the new taxpayer software that the collector’s office is using will delay the mailing of Callaway County’s real estate and property tax bills this year. The new PC based software was implemented in February.
