Repeal of Renters’ Credit on Fast Track

This week the Senate Committee on General Laws held a public hearing on legislation that would repeal a tax credit that is claimed by low-income elderly and disabled renters.HCB 3 has already passed the Missouri House.

The Missouri Catholic Conference (MCC) testified against HCB 3. MOCAN network members recently received an Action Alert from the MCC urging contacts to State Senators with a message asking for opposition to HCB 3. At present, over 100,000 lower-income Missourians are receiving the tax credit, which averages $535 a year.
