Dayton's budget plan: $2.1 billion in added taxes
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton on Tuesday proposed $2.1 billion more in state taxes, partly by subjecting more items to the sales tax in a tradeoff for a lowered rate.
The Democrat's proposal increases the amount owed on income above $150,000 for single filers, subjects high-end clothing to the sales tax and raises cigarette taxes by 94 cents per pack. But he also wants to cut the corporate tax and provide property tax rebates of up to $500.
