 COLUMBIA — Tax credits have become a pressing issue in the past year as Missouri hopes to solve its budget crisis. Gov. Jay Nixon created the Tax Credit Review Commission on July 21 to analyze the 61 tax credit programs in the state. According to a September Associated Press report, the commission will make a recommendation for which programs should face cuts by Thanksgiving. According to the report, the state will grant almost $500 million in credits for the year.
