Expand the Working Family Tax Credit and child care credits…reduce property taxes for farmers…and increase state aid to cities and counties — major features of Governor Mark Dayton’s 2017 tax proposal. Particularly controversial is his call to eliminate what he calls a business tax loophole. Dayton says, “I don’t think Minnesotans would object to our making large corporations doing business overseas pay their appropriate share of state taxes, as they’re paying federal taxes.” Dayton remains opposed to exempting Social Security benefits from state taxes, arguing it would benefit mainly upper-income Minnesotans. He argues there are better ways to help elderly Minnesotans who are struggling to make ends meet.
