Missouri Program Overview

Missouri’s Property Tax Credit Claim gives credit (a maximum of $750 for renters and $1,100 for owners who occupied their home) to certain senior citizens and 100 percent disabled individuals for a portion of the real estate taxes or rent they pay for the year. The actual credit is based on the amount of real estate taxes or rent paid and total household income (taxable and nontaxable).
