Fuel Tax Increases Begins

Jefferson City

(Jefferson City) The gradual increase of Missouri’s fuel tax has started.

When the governor signed Senate Bill 262 last month it included an increase of two-and-a-half cents a year over a five-year period.

That will hike the state’s fuel tax from 17 cents to 29-and-a-half cents a gallon.

State officials say the additional revenue will go toward maintaining Missouri’s roads and bridges.

People can apply for a refund of the tax increase if they keep their receipt when they fill up and file it with their income taxes.
