Latest DFL Income Tax Increase for High Incomes

The latest version starts at over 200K for singles. That's quite a bit different than starting at $70,000 that Mindy Greiling was proposing.

There are also tons of proposals for various tax credits and deductions. I appreciate that Tax Chair Ann Lenczewski is cool to those ideas.

The one idea that will help Minneapolis more than restoring local government aid, is to make sure municipalities are exempt from the sales tax. Right now they aren't. As I understand it, Minneapolis and Hennepin County pay more into the State through sales tax, than we get back through LGA.

The current system is great for politicians who like to pass the buck and blame other units of government for problems.
