"When the legislature reconvenes in January, the contentious issue of whether Missouri should repeal the state income tax will surely arise. At stake is not lost tax revenue, because proposals for repealing the state income tax also entail increasing the state sales tax in order to keep state tax revenues at the same level. Rather, the issue at hand is whether Missouri would be more prosperous with a more broadly based sales tax instead of the combination of state sales and income taxes that we have today." (12/24/10)
