2017 Minnesota tax bill to start with popular, but failed, 2016 version

 


ST. PAUL -- Wildly popular 2016 Minnesota tax legislation would have cut farmland property taxes, increased state aid to local governments, handed tax breaks to a spouse of a disabled military veteran, reduced state property taxes and made dozens of other tax-related changes.

But even with nearly 90 percent of legislators backing the measure, it never became law. Gov. Mark Dayton did not sign it because his administration discovered a costly wording mistake, and a special legislative session that could have passed the bill never materialized.

So when the 2017 Legislature convenes Tuesday, Jan. 3, the old bill will be used as a framework for a new one.
