Missouri Auditor Nicole Galloway has blamed Gov. Mike Parson and the Department of Revenue for the thousands of residents still waiting on their 2018 tax returns. Gov. Mike Parson says Galloway's trying to score political points as she seeks his position.
“Taxpayers deserve assurances that this dysfunction will not carry over into another tax year. Missourians rely on their refunds to pay bills and afford necessities. They are tired of excuses,” Galloway said.
Parson told Missourinet affiliate KSSZ his administration is aware some Missourians have not received their tax returns. However, he said most filed for extensions or have issues with their taxes.
“There’s nobody trying to hold up tax returns here in the state of Missouri,” Parson said. “For us, it makes no sense to do that. We want to get it out so we can clear up the books and go to the next side.”
As for Galloway, he said "she’s been pounding that drum for a long time and I just think she’s off beat.”
