MN Governor Dayton Wants New Tax On Trucking


Overdrive Online has a very informative article on trucking interests in Minnesota that are hoping to melt plans by the governor to implement a new tax on trucking.

A state budget is being offered up by Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party Gov. Mark Dayton, which would make a range of business-to-business and consumer services subject to the state sales tax. This would include putting a state 5.5% sales tax on trucking services, but would also lower the state sales tax rate from its existing 6.875% rate. The goal, proponents say, would be to close a more than $1 billion deficit the state faces. The plan also calls for lowering corporate tax rates and freezing business property taxes.
