Tax Competitiveness

Tax Competitiveness

OUR GOALS
We support a pro-growth tax system that improves competitiveness, reduces complexity, improves predictability and stability, and increases accountability. Minnesota’s state and local tax systems should be changed to ensure they cultivate innovation, attract investment and foster job growth and retention.

OUR 2017 LEGISLATIVE PRIORITIES FOR TAX COMPETITIVENESS

  • Enact meaningful business property tax relief.
  • Enhance research-and-development tax credit.
  • Conform estate tax to federal threshold.
  • Provide income-tax relief for pass-through companies.
  • Adopt federal conformity including Section 179 expensing.
  • Improve taxpayer procedural protections and administration.
