Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton paid nearly $106,000 in state and federal taxes last year. Dayton released his 2013 tax returns on Wednesday. His total earnings were $352,601 from a state salary, dividends and capital gains. Less than a third of that comes from his gubernatorial salary. After deductions, he paid taxes on about $315,000. The governor increased his charitable donations to $10,000 as well, after professing embarrassment that he only gave $1,000 the year before.
