A bit too far

During the July storm we lost a lot of trees, some did damage to structures. We had Mike’s tree service remove them and when we got the bill much to our surprise the State of Minnesota charges sales tax on natural disasters. We found this hard to believe so I sent an email to our local senators and representative. They confirmed this for us. In my opinion this is carrying sales tax a bit too far. I think we need to balance the budget but we need to cut the fat out of a lot of programs not come up with ways to tax us more.
