State Rep. Burnett: Governor called $60,000 special session to give sales tax break to one Missouri couple
Current law allows the value of only one vehicle to be credited toward sales tax owed on the purchase of a vehicle, and Gov. Mike Parson’s administration defended the law all the way to the Missouri Supreme Court, which ruled in the administration’s favor and said the law is unambiguous that credit can be given for just one vehicle.
Despite winning the case, (Guv) Parson, a Republican, inexplicably called a special legislative session for the sole purpose of asking the General Assembly to overturn his administration’s legal victory.
Since special sessions typically are reserved for issues that demand immediate action and can’t wait until the next regular legislative session in January, Parson has been widely criticized for calling a special session on this topic instead of something more pressing such as gun violence.
