Kansas City Councilwoman Still Working To Reduce Tax Abatements
Councilwoman Melissa Robinson wants to see smaller and shorter tax abatements available for development projects so that more money goes to public services like schools, libraries and mental health.
Currently there are a number of agencies in Kansas City, Missouri, that can offer developers tax abatements or incentives. If Robinson's ordinance passes, the amounts and the length of abatements would be reduced.
