Tell Lawmakers to Stop Taxing Shelters in Missouri

We're sorry, but you cannot take action on this alert. This may be because the alert is restricted to specific states or to constituents of specific representatives, or because your address does not match a ZIP code we can properly map to your representative, or because your representative does not have a contact email address or webform.

Oh please! Taxing something shelter related? These officials are the ones that need to help their state by not getting paid so dang much!

Why tax animal shelters when they are performing a public service? That does NOT make sense. Tried to note, but couldn't.

It would not let me sign.
We need a global petition compiled for this.

Done! Thanks, Cher.

I'm able to sign these US-only petitions because a kindly American C2 friend took me on as a 'virtual lodger'. Americans, if you have C2 friends from elsewhere, maybe you could do the same...? I see a lot of surveys unsigned because of the lack of an American address.

cant sign US only
Why would they tax a shelter surely this is a charity and should not be taxed The governments never usually
give funds to these places so how can they ask for tax What a cheek!! when they are doing a job the government should be doing in the first place
