ST. LOUIS – The first public hearing to take an in-depth look at taxation policies for remote workers in Missouri is Tuesday.

The special committee was created last month to focus on the impact of the one percent tax on wages earned in the city. The St. Louis earnings tax makes up 36% of the city’s general revenue.

The public hearings will look at how much revenue non-resident, remote workers contribute to the city and potential alternatives to taxing them.
