Since the end of World War Two, the field of economic incentives has grown exponentially, covering a spectrum from simple property tax abatement for curing blight, to complex tax credits and refunds for job creation. Each year, the Missouri legislature has added new provisions and amended old ones. Furthermore, many incentive projects have been challenged in court with respect to whether they comply with the statute involved, and even the constitutionality of the statutes themselves have been called into question. Today, virtually every city in America has an economic development director. Any lawyer practicing in the field of land use, or representing expanding or relocating companies, needs to be aware of these issues. Missouri Economic Development Law catalogues all Missouri and relevant federal programs, and explains them in plain English, with black letter summaries for each type. This book should be a part of the library of every law firm, city attorney, economic development official and judge in Missouri.
