  3. 3. The St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce has a long-standing tradition of being the catalyst for economic development and growth in Northwest Missouri. Since the founding members started the Board of Trade of St. Joseph in 1862, there has been a united group of leaders standing up for the business community. While business is the Chamber’s top priority, Chamber leaders know that industry and commerce can only succeed in a growing, viable community. The Chamber’s mission is to “create an environment that allows business to succeed and the community to prosper.” Driven by the needs and concerns of our members and the community, the Chamber has five overall priorities that support our mission – • Participate in the success of our members; • Sustain community collaborations and build partnerships; • Secure resources necessary to pursue our mission; • Enhance the community’s economic prosperity; • Advocate for business.

Each of these areas is instrumental in sustaining our quality of life and making St. Joseph a great place to live and work. The Chamber is concerned with a host of issues, but a common thread runs throughout the organization – a commitment to providing first-rate programs and services for the benefit of members and the community. While the staff is a hard-working group, the Chamber could not succeed without its dedicated volunteers who help staff achieve these goals and fulfill its mission. Chamber membership is an investment – an investment of money and time that can help your business succeed and our community prosper. The more time members spend attending Chamber events, networking with other members and learning at business-related educational sessions, the better their business can become. The St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce Economic Development Division serves as the lead economic development agency for the community. In partnership with the City of St. Joseph and Buchanan County, all strides are made to recruit new businesses to St. Joseph. Staff also has the important task of working with existing businesses. They facilitate dialogue between businesses and the appropriate governmental agencies to address the challenges a business may be facing. In addition, the department works to maximize growth opportunities for existing businesses. The Economic Development Division is funded through a community partnership for economic development. It is supported with funds raised from both the public and private sectors. The Economic Development Investors Partnership includes the City of St. Joseph, Buchanan County and almost 145 local businesses. The Economic Development Division recognizes what an important role both community and workforce development play in creating a community where people want to live and work, and businesses wish to invest. Both are key components of a successful business attraction and retention strategy. As such, the division proactively facilitates this mission by implementing and supporting many initiatives designed to enhance quality of life and life-long learning. The Economic Development Division also partners to improve physical infrastructure and amenities, another key to growth. Small Business & Technology Development Center Housed in the St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce, Northwest Missouri State University’s Small Business and Technology Development Center (SBTDC), is available to assist individuals and businesses with issues involving business start-up, expansion, purchase, sale, marketing, financial analysis and almost any other issue that presents itself to current or potential small business owners. The services provided by the SBTDC are free of charge. St. Joseph Regional Port Authority The Port of St. Joseph is an intermodal port owned by the St. Joseph Regional Port Authority. The port was developed to serve the agricultural and industrial markets of Northwest Missouri and Northeast Kansas. The port is conveniently located at the foot of the U.S. Highway 36 bridge into Kansas, with easy access to interstates 29 and 35 serving Northwest Missouri. It offers full intermodal capabilities of barge, rail and truck. In addition to cargo transfer, the port can provide direct delivery of materials, or outside storage, for wire and other products. The Port Authority is governed by a seven-member board and is administered by an executive director housed in the Chamber office. Government Affairs This division works to foster good relations with the various levels of government, and to represent the business community in addressing legislative issues. Government policies directly affect business, so the Chamber speaks out on behalf of the business community. The Chamber monitors a wide variety of issues and focuses on a number of key areas. The Chamber’s advocacy ranges from formal testimony to informal discussions with key elected officials. Community Alliance of Saint Joseph Located at the Chamber, the Community Alliance of Saint Joseph promotes a shared vision for the community through collective input from citizens. Its purpose is to provide a strategic plan and implementation process to help St. Joseph optimize its potential. Key focus areas include advancing improved educational opportunities, improved livability and quality jobs. Promoting a positive image of the community helps to ensure growth and a solid future for St. Joseph. Administration The Administration Division provides coordination and direction of all organizational resources, financial services and building management and administers the computer system. Communications Within the Administration Division is the Communications Department, which is responsible for the management, planning and dissemination of Chamber publications. These publications include the quarterly Business Journal, which is published in the St. Joseph News-Press; Connections, the monthly membership newsletter; press releases; event invitations; advertisements; and web content for the Chamber’s websites, www.saintjoseph.com, www.choosestjoseph.com and www.stjosephsmallbusiness.com. Members, residents and tourists are also encouraged to download Go St. Joe, a free smartphone app that serves as a mobile business directory, event calendar and deal finder. Economic Development 5
  4. 4. The Membership Services Division works to strengthen the membership of the Chamber through effective retention and recruitment efforts. Also, this division provides networking and educational opportunities to members while increasing the visibility of the Chamber within the community. Membership Services coordinates events such as the Annual Banquet; monthly Lunch & Learn seminars; Chairman’s Breakfasts; a New Executives Luncheon; New Member Luncheons; the Chamber Classic golf tournament and a Business Summit. This division is also responsible for fun, networking events like Business Mixers, Parties on the Parkway and Rockin’ on the River.

  6. 6. St. Joseph is the birthplace of the Pony Express and also is the city where the outlaw Jesse James was murdered, so the history held along St. Joseph’s streets, and in its museums, is a main draw for tourists interested in the Wild West. But before its Wild West days, St. Joseph was a trading post. Settled in 1826 by Joseph Robidoux, his trading post soon became a fur-trading empire stretching to the southern Rocky Mountains. The Platte Purchase joined his land to the State of Missouri in 1837. The city was incorporated in 1843 by Robidoux and named St. Joseph after his patron saint. The city remained relatively small until the discovery of gold in California in 1848, when St. Joseph served as a jumping off spot for the Gold Rush. Wagon trains filled with westward pioneers and hotels and businesses opened to accommodate the new families and travelers. The community’s merchants, craftsmen, saddle- and harness-makers, gunsmiths and meat packers supplied thousands of the ‘49ers seeking fortune out West. The supplies purchased by the emigrants established the economic foundation of the city. Growth accelerated in 1859 when the railroad reached St. Joseph, assuring its role as a supply and distribution point to the entire western half of the country. St. Joseph’s proximity to the Missouri River and accessibility by way of river, rail and land was to be the impetus for phenomenal growth throughout the 19th century. April 3, 1860, marks the beginning of St. Joseph’s most romantic adventure. It was the day the City of St. Joseph became embedded in history books – the day when the Pony Express sent its first daring horseback rider to Sacramento, California, carrying mail to the western frontier. Although the Pony Express operated for only 18 months, preservation of the stables and headquarters has kept the legend alive to this day. Principal channels of distribution were established in the 1870s with St. Joseph becoming a leading wholesale center for the building of the west. The 1880s and 1890s were the golden age of prosperity for the city. Many of that era’s mansions, built with the wealth generated by St. Joseph’s booming business, still remain. St. Joseph is where the outlaw Jesse James met his demise. The small frame home where he was shot by a gang member in 1882 History usbank.com Member FDIC Visit US today for all your financial needs!

The school district is AAA District Accredited and has a staff with close to 55 percent of the teachers with master’s degrees.

Inspections must be used for the purchase of license plates within 60 days of the inspection date. • A county tax non-assessment card takes the place of a county personal property tax receipt the first time an out-of-state car is licensed in Missouri. This card can be obtained by registering at the County Assessor’s Office, and then getting the actual card at the County Collector’s Office located in the Buchanan County Courthouse at Fifth and Jules. • Proof of vehicle insurance.

  16. 16. Personal Income Taxes Missouri’s individual income tax rates are graduated from a low of 1.5 percent on taxable incomes of $1,000 or less, to a high of $315 plus 6 percent on taxable income in excess of $9,000. Taxable income may be reduced by 100 percent of federal income tax payments, $1,200 for each dependent, $2,100 for each personal exemption and by the federal standard deduction or Missouri itemized deduction. Corporate Income Taxes State law sets the corporate income tax rate at 6.25 percent of net taxable income earned by a business in Missouri. This is lower than most of the 46 states imposing a corporate income tax. In addition, Missouri allows 50 percent of federal income tax payments to be deducted before computing taxable income. Using this deduction, a corporation with a taxable income of $1 million would have a Missouri effective tax rate of only 5.2 percent. Missouri Taxable Income An important tax advantage for Missouri businesses is the amount of income considered taxable – only income earned in Missouri is taxed. Two allocation options are offered for calculating this income – • the three factor formula based on sales, property and payroll, or • the single-factor formula, based only on sales. Missouri is the only state that permits companies to choose the formula that results in the lesser corporate income tax liability. This means that companies are not penalized for locating property and jobs in Missouri as they are in other states. In addition, it is important to note that Missouri has not adopted worldwide or nationwide unitary tax assessment in computing multinational corporate income tax liability.
