Missouri Individual Income Tax Provisions

At tax time, some states individually tax their residents' incomes on a state-specific level. States with income taxes have a choice on which filing system they want to adopt: joint, combined, or a mixture of the two. Missouri is one of two states (the other being Pennsylvania) that uses a combined filing system, where the income of each spouse is taxed separately. Under this system, each person can take advantage of low tax rates at the front end of the tax schedule.

Missouri uses the federal adjusted gross income as a starting point for its tax base. From there, certain differences apply between the federal and state guidelines regarding what income is taxed.


There are some forms of income that are excluded from the state tax base, which differs from the federal law. They are:

  • Interest from U.S. Government bonds
  • Capital gains from sale of low-income housing are exempt 25%
  • Up to $6,000 in private pension income
  • Up to $35,939/person in public pension/civil service income
  • 60% of military pension income, reduced by the amount already excluded under public pension
  • All combat zone earnings
  • Social security benefits, subject to AGI limits
  • Up to $5,000 in federal income tax ($10,000 if filed under a joint return)


Missouri's standard deductions are the same as the federal government, and other deductions exist which can help save resident taxpayers money. Don't forget about the following Missouri state deductions:

  • Long-term care and health insurance premiums
  • Health care sharing ministry contributions
  • Contributions and withdrawals from family development and individual medical accounts
  • Business income from enterprise or rural empowerment zone
  • Annual contributions to college savings plans
  • Home energy audit costs
  • Cultural charity contributions
  • FICA taxes, railroad retirement taxes, and self-employment tax not deducted at federal level
