Special Olympics awards not taxed

    After following “Missouri Proposition D, the Gas Tax Increase, Olympic Prize Tax Exemption, and Traffic Reduction Fund Measure,” in the news and in some Letter to the Editor sections across the state, it appears there has been some confusion on how it relates to Special Olympics athletes and the medals they win at their competitions. The ballot measure mentions that a “yes” vote (among other things) “exempts prizes for Special Olympics, Paralympics, and Olympics from state taxes.”
