$1.9B surplus revives clamor for business tax cuts

Monday, December 7, 2015

Ya think? If I wasn’t paying so much in taxes maybe I would hire another person, buy a new laptop or a white board, or just take my wife out to dinner? Instead of giving it to the dummies in St Paul so they can invent ways to waste it? Really?

From the CAPITOL REPORT: The Minnesota Chamber of Commerce united with more than 70 other business groups from around the state to advocate for tax cuts after officials unveiled a projected $1.87 billion surplus heading into the next legislative session. At least one commercial real estate trade group, NAIOP Minnesota, joined the renewed clamor for tax relief this week after a bill that promised steep tax cuts collapsed earlier this year - a casualty of a fiery debate over transportation funding and several now-resolved budget bills. Proposals last year in both the House and Senate included landmark business tax relief.
