Email News Alerts

ST. PAUL - Gov. Mark Dayton heard the complaints and is revising the tax reform proposal he announced six weeks ago.

Gone is a business-to-business sales tax that drew most of the ire. He told that to a Chamber of Commerce meeting this morning, but said details about his new plan will come Tuesday.


Dayton proposed to lower the sales tax rate 20 percent, but to begin collecting it on most services and clothing costing $100 or more.
