The Missouri Design for Conservation Sales Tax
What is it?
The Design for Conservation Sales Tax is a 1/8th of a cent sales tax that goes directly to support fish, forest and wildlife conservation efforts through the Missouri Department of Conservation. That is one penny goes for conservation efforts out of every $8 dollars of taxable goods. In the early 1970's Missouri citizen's petitioned to have the tax placed on the ballot. The tax passed and was implemented in 1976. In 1999 state officials attempted to divert the money from the conservation tax to pay refunds to taxpayers. The Missouri Supreme Court ruled that the state's 1/8 percent conservation sales tax must be used only for conservation and cannot be considered part of the state's total revenues.Missouri's conservation efforts are the envy of other states. Many other states including Iowa and Arkansas have adopted similar methods of supporting conservation efforts in their states.
( from the blog "Wild Missouri")
Missouri`s conservation tax is now endangered by a bill recently introduced HJR 22. The politicians can`t stand it when things work as well as the Missouri conservation tax did. Under the present statute they can`t get their hands on any of the conservation tax generated funds.
