Do you want to adopt Senate Bill 262 passed by the General Assembly in 2021, which amends Missouri Law to:

  • increase motor fuel tax by an additional 2.5 cents per gallon per year for a total increase of 12.5 cents per gallon when fully enacted;
  • increase fees for alternative and electric fuel decals by 10 or 20 percent (depending on vehicle weight) per year for five years; and
  • allow taxpayers who retain original receipts for paid motor fuel tax to apply for a refund with the Department of Revenue for the additional tax paid on a fiscal year basis?

State governmental entities estimate initial costs of at least $500,000, ongoing costs of at least $500,000 annually, and increased revenues of $90 million to $330 million annually by 2027. Local governments are estimated to have unknown costs and increased revenues of $30 million to $120 million annually by 2027.
