On Thursday, July 6, 2023, Missouri Governor Mike Parson signed Senate Bill 190 into law. Under the new law, property tax rates could be frozen for Social Security, retirement-eligible Missourians. It is up to each individual county government to opt into participating in this tax relief for eligible seniors.
