Target: TAX PAYERS OF MISSOURI

Petition Background (Preamble):

Personal property tax is an unfair tax on the ownership of assets in the state of Missouri.

Missouri is one of only a few states that continue to tax its residents by what they own.

It is time to end this tax, allowing the people to keep a very small portion, of what they are already giving up in taxation.
