Federal tax reform has created an opportunity to improve Minnesota’s tax code; public input is needed
Senate Tax Committee Chair Roger Chamberlain (R-Lino Lakes) and local state senators will be soliciting public input in six town hall meetings across the state as Minnesota prepares to react to recent federal tax changes.
“Federal tax relief will be good for all of us. People will see reduced taxes, higher wages, more jobs, and greater opportunity, economic security, and shared prosperity — but only if we make the necessary changes that will help Minnesota families take full advantage of the benefits,” said Sen. Chamberlain.
Federal tax reform is expected to deliver $2,000 in tax relief to the typical middle-income family of four[i], but Minnesota laws must change accordingly to avoid unnecessarily complex state tax returns or state tax increases.
