Thousands of Missourians still waiting on 2018 tax returns

Missouri State Auditor Nicole Galloway says her office is hearing from an “increasing number of taxpayers who have not received their refunds, despite some of those returns being filed as early as January.”

Governor Mike Parson’s office has offered no real plan to handle the situation, Galloway notes in a letter sent to Parson on Monday.

Parson previously responded to Galloway’s concerns by shifting the blame to previous gubernatorial administrations of Eric Greitens and Jay Nixon.

Galloway is among the Democratic names that has been floated to challenge Parson for governor next year.
