Selective Service Registration Requirement 

Anyone who is required to register under the United States Military Selective Service Act must show proof of registration prior to being offered employment with the State of Missouri.  (Authority:  Section 105.1213, RSMo.)

State Taxes Requirement  

State law now requires all employees to pay their state taxes in a timely manner as a condition of employment.  Each year the Department of Revenue will determine if any state employees are delinquent in paying their state taxes for the prior tax year. Employees who are delinquent will be notified and given sufficient time to resolve their state tax liability.  Employees who fail to meet this requirement will be terminated.  (Authority:  Section 105.262, RSMo.)
