Missouri Moves Toward A Truce With Kansas Over Tax-Incentive Border War

Kansas and Missouri throw millions of dollars in tax incentives at businesses to lure them across state lines. But a bill, SB 182, would end this “border war.”

Supporters said the legislation would put an end to companies receiving millions of dollars in tax breaks to move a matter of blocks, without bringing in many new jobs or employees to the region.

“These folks aren’t moving across the state line, the company is,” said Sen. Mike Cierpiot, the Lee’s Summit Republican sponsoring the bill. “Everything else about them still stays the same, they’re still shopping in the same stores, with the same paycheck.”
