JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- The Missouri House passed legislation that would renew tax credits for charitable causes such as food pantries and centers for pregnant woman. The vote on Wednesday by the House puts the legislation just one final step from the governor's desk. The Senate previously passed the bill and must give it another vote.
The legislation would reinstate tax credits that expired in 2011 for food pantry donations, and tax credits that expired in 2012 for donations to pregnancy resource centers and child advocacy centers. All three of those tax credits would be extended to 2019.
The bill also renews tax credits for surviving spouses of deceased public safety officers and for people who improve their homes to be accessible to disabled people.
Tax credit bill is SB20.
