Missouri’s tax climate gets an ‘A’ grade in the 2010 Manufacturing and Logistics Report Card

The 2010 Manufacturing and Logistics Report Card, prepared by Ball State University’s Center for Business and Economic Research, noted certain states – those with low tax rates, diversity of industry and government support – may return to prerecession production levels within one to two years.

The study, released June 21, grades all 50 states based on nine criteria: manufacturing, logistics, human capital, cost of benefits, global reach, diversification of industries, productivity and innovation, tax climate, and venture capital. Missouri ranked No. 13 overall, and No. 3 for tax climate.
