Previous laws stated that a taxpayer must meet certain requirements for the Director of Revenue to take on the burden of proof in tax disputes.
On September 10th the Missouri Legislature passed an act that removes all requirements, therefore putting the burden of proof on the Director of Revenue for all tax disputes and exception cases. This is an act that any taxpayer can benefit from, no matter what type of entity they are or what their net worth is, as it will help taxpayers and their CPAs in disputes with the Missouri Department of Revenue.
