JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri lawmakers are looking for ways to collect taxes from some online and out-of-state retailers.
    
State budget officials estimate that Missouri could gain about $10 million annually in tax revenues if legislation filed in both the House and Senate were to pass.
    
The bills address two areas that traditional retail stores contend put them at a disadvantage. One provision would require Missouri taxes to be collected on out-of-state retailers that personally deliver products like furniture and appliances to Missouri homes.
    
Another section of legislation seeks to levy taxes on online retailers, if they get at least $10,000 worth of sales annually from Missouri businesses that route Internet traffic to them.
