JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) Local officials and Missouri vehicle dealers are sending emails urging Gov. Jay Nixon to sign legislation allowing communities to continue levying taxes on vehicle purchases. But it appears to be an uphill effort because Nixon previously said the legislation would “bypass” a public vote and improperly

impose a tax. Nixon has not specifically said whether he will sign or veto the bill. Many Missourians long have paid state and local taxes when buying a vehicle. But the state Supreme Court ruled that some local taxes cannot be levied when the purchase was made in another state. Lawmakers responded with a bill to reinstate the sales taxes.
Local officials and vehicle dealers warn of lost tax revenue and
customers buying cars and RVs elsewhere.
