March 4, 2010 at 6:00 pm

Senate Tax Chair Tom Bakk, DFL-Cook, introduced legislation today to reduce Minnesota’s state sales tax, decrease the state’s massive budget deficit, and increase funding for Minnesota schools.  To accomplish this, Sen. Bakk would implement Gov. Pawlenty’s 21st Century Tax Reform Commission’s recommendation to expand the sales tax base; by eliminating the exemption on clothing beginning July 1, 2010.  Minnesota is one of only five states that still carries the exemption.
