Governor Dayton has signed legislation that eliminates some onerous new taxes approved by legislative Democrats and the governor himself last spring, and allows Minnesotans to claim neededincome tax deductions prior to the April 15 filing deadline.

State Representative Greg Davids (R-Preston) approved the measure.

“Many hardworking taxpayers will receive larger refund checks because we were able to pass a number of federal income tax conformity positions into law,” Davids said. “If you have already filed your state income taxes, know that the Department of Revenue will review your submission and will be contacting you if you qualify for the new deductions.”

In addition to conforming to federal income tax guidelines, the proposal eliminates three controversial business-to-business taxes: warehousing and storage, equipment repair, and telecommunications

machinery.

“We told our Democratic majority repeatedly that unnecessarily raising taxes last year was a bad idea,” Davids said. “It took several months, but hardworking taxpayers made their voices heard and these taxes will soon be coming off the books.”
