Minnesotans have put up with high taxes and suffered through minimal economic growth for too long. With a projected budget surplus, we have the opportunity to change course and start down a new path of greater opportunity and more jobs.
The Senate and House recently passed a bi-partisan tax plan that builds on the benefits of federal tax reform and puts more money back in the pockets of hardworking families.
Featuring the first state income tax reduction since 2000, this tax bill is a great step forward in providing permanent income tax relief for Minnesota families and taxpayers.
Unfortunately, tax law is complicated.
The federal and state tax codes interact in a way that changes to the federal tax system could result in an unintentional $800 million state tax increase for Minnesota families and businesses unless state tax reform is enacted.
If Governor Dayton ignores these complexities, or vetoes the bill, this would undermine all the progress that's been made on tax reform in Congress and here in Minnesota.
Governor Dayton needs to ensure tax reform at the state and federal levels work together, so Minnesota families can keep more of their hard-earned money. Join us in supporting state tax reform and helping our communities grow and thrive!
