MN Senate DFL Releases Tax Plan 24 Apr 13

Minnesota Senate Democrats tax plan rolled out on Tuesday includes a controversial extension of the state sales tax to clothing, while lowering the sales tax rate more than a percentage point. Low-income Minnesotans would get up to a $60 credit to offset the tax on clothing. The plan also increases the cigarette tax by 94-cents, includes little cigars in the definition of cigarettes, and has an around 20% tax hike for other tobacco products. The Senate DFL tax plan would also increase the income tax rate for more Minnesotans than Governor Dayton’s plan. Married filers making more than about $142,000 a year would pay more in taxes. There’s also a sports memorabilia tax.
