House Budget Cuts Renters Tax Credit Program – Fight Expected In Senate

St. Louis Post-Dispatch – The Missouri House today approved a $27.8 billion dollar budget that increases funding for public schools, cuts money for Missouri colleges, and eleimnates the “circuit breaker” tax credit for renters. The circuit breaker tax cut means thousands of low income Missourians¬†will lose an average of $500 per year.

The impact of the cuts, however, falls disproportionately on the people who most heavily rely on the assistance programs.
