LIz Zack has the story from Jefferson City.
A 3% tax cut may save you money at the supermarket, but it might also give the supermarket an unfair advantage over restraunts.
Executive Director of the Missouri Restaurant Association Carl Degan testified in front of the Senate Ways and Means Committee today. He said that the proposed tax cut is discriminatory.Degan also pointed out that in St. Louis restraunts are taxed 1 and a half percent more than grocery stores to begin with.
