St. Louis City Earnings Tax Refund Claims

The City of St. Louis has reached a settlement allowing non-city residents to collect their earnings tax refunds for teleworking days from 2020 through 2023 reversing its prior position.

Plaintiffs’ attorney Mark C. Milton sued the City of St. Louis and Gregory F.X. Daly, the City’s Collector of Revenue, in March 2021 challenging their refusal to issue earnings tax refunds to non-city residents working outside the City during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As part of the settlement involving six individual plaintiffs, the City of St. Louis and the Collector of Revenue have agreed to issue earnings tax refunds to all eligible NON-CITY RESIDENTS for days they worked outside the City for tax years 2020, 2021, 2022, and 2023. 

The refunds are not automatic, and taxpayers must submit a claim to be eligible for refunds. 

Who is eligible?  

  • ONLY non-City residents (people who resided outside the City) who had St. Louis earnings tax withheld from their pay for tax years 2020, 2021, 2022, and/or 2023 (as reflected on their W-2s from their employers).  

When is the deadline? 

  • For tax years 2020, 2021, and 2022, refund claims must be submitted by September 30, 2024. 
  • For tax year 2023, the deadline is April 15, 2025.
