Veterans organizations want official “non-profit” status… and they have a chance to get it with Amendment 6 on the November ballot. Lobbyist Ernie Lee, with the Missouri Association for Veterans organizations, says the amendment would ensure an important tax break from real and personal property taxes. These taxes became an issue when Jackson County and St. Charles County began demanding those taxes from some veterans organizations. The counties concluded certain veterans organizations that generated more money from social events than they donated to charities didn’t qualify for the tax break.
