The Earnings Tax Department is the largest department in the Collector of Revenue Office and is responsible for collecting all payroll and earnings taxes due to the City of St. Louis. Some of these taxes are due monthly, others quarterly and others annually. Earnings tax forms are available for you on this site.

The one percent earnings tax is collected from all city residents and non-city residents who work within city limits. These funds comprise one-third of the city’s budget and are directed into the City’s general fund. The City of St. Louis is the sole recipient of these funds.

Citizens may choose to pay their earnings taxes in a variety of ways. The office currently accepts cashier's checks or money orders via US mail directed to:

Gregory F.X. Daly, Collector of Revenue
1200 Market Street, Room 410
St Louis, MO 63103

Payments may also be made in person using cash, cashier's checks or money orders in Room 410 of City Hall. Personal checks are only accepted for current taxes. Credit cards are accepted for many earnings tax transactions. Please contact the office to see if your payment qualifies.
