The Missouri Property Tax Credit Claim is a program administered by the Missouri Department of Revenue to give credit to certain senior citizens and
100 percent disabled individuals for a portion of the real estate taxes or rent they have paid for the year. The credit is for a maximum of $750 and can only be claimed on the home they occupied during the period being claimed. The actual credit is based on the amount of real estate taxes or rent paid and total household income.
