However, Missourians that do not wish to increase their contributions to state and local roadway repair and replacement projects can submit the required documentation including fuel receipts to the Missouri Department of Revenue each year for a refund.

This seems like a, shall we say, unique feature of this law.

Yeah, it seems like they only raised the tax on people not from Missouri, while giving people who are from Missouri a bunch of bureaucracy to deal with.  Ridiculous.

I mean, let's be real here. How many people are actually going to go through the trouble of saving the receipt every time they gas up and file a return to get a refund of 12/gallon? Quick googling suggests that the average person uses 656 gallons of gas a year, so you could potentially get a return of $82. That's not an insubstantial amount of money, but there are plenty of people that couldn't be bothered to put in the work to avail themselves of it.

That is insane. You use the roads, you pay for them. Missouri is so backwards.

What backwards?  This isn't any different than municipalities that enact taxes on hotels and car rentals.  That's just as insane.  But legislative leaders always pat themselves on the back for getting someone else to pay for what they want.

It seems that nonresidents will also be allowed to claim a refund, although it's likely they won't know about it.
