Grocery shoppers expecting to pay no sales tax, will get to the register needing a few more nickels and dimes.
Jennifer Sheffield explains in Jefferson City.
A two dollar loaf of bread in the super market aisle will not cost two dollars at the register despite a cut in the state food tax.
The 3-cent reduction does not eliminate education, conservation, and local taxes added to the price of food.
The state's Budget Director is Mark Ward.
On average, you'll see a tax decrease of three percent. That will save you six cents on a two dollar loaf of bread.
