Missouri Gov. Mike Parson recently signed into law legislation that reduces the state's individual income tax rate.

The law, signed on Oct. 5, 2022, and effective for the 2023 calendar year, reduces the top individual income tax rate from 5.2 percent to 4.95 percent. It also eliminates the bottom income tax bracket, allowing Missourians to earn their first $1,000 tax-free. In addition, the law allows for an additional 0.15 percent top income tax rate reduction to 4.8 percent when Missouri’s net general revenues increase by $175 million and another 0.1 percent top income tax rate reduction in future years when net general revenue of the state increases by $200 million. If Missouri’s revenue increases as stated above and the corresponding rate reductions take effect, the new legislation will reduce the top income tax rate in Missouri to 4.5 percent.

For this reason, you should specifically address the vacation home in your estate plan to avoid hard feelings and even disputes.
