Missouri man wants state tax repeal in 2012
JEFFERSON CITY, Missouri: A St. Louis resident wants the state of Missouri to repeal state tax on personal property, and wants his proposed measure placed on the November 2012 ballot. Richard La Violette, a banker from Fenton, believes that taxes are a burden to citizens and should be cut to some extent.
Although property taxes help fund public schools and local governments, La Violette believes the government should look elsewhere to fund their budgets. The Missouri man justified his early start to the measure, stating he wanted to gather a substantial amount of professional signature gatherers.
