Gov. Dayton drops business-to-business tax

MinnPost reports that Governor Dayton dropped the controversial business-to-business tax, which would impose taxes on legal services.

Gov. Mark Dayton said in a speech Friday morning that he’s taking the controversial business-to-business tax — which had been much villified by many executives  — off the table.

Speaking to the TwinWest Chamber of Commerce Legislative Breakfast at a St. Louis Park hotel, Dayton brought much relief to many business leaders there. State officials said it would have added $2.2 billion in state revenue by taxing business services such as advertising and legal advice.

MPR reported that Dayton said his initial budget proposal “obviously lacked public support” and that now “it lacks mine.”

Now, the anticipated new budget was set to be released on Tuesday, but it was delayed.  Governor Dayton’s staff stated that it will released “later in the week” since the tweaking of numbers continues. You can read MinnPost article here.

District of MN Bill of Costs

The District Court of Minnesota has put up an amended Bill of Costs Guide in order to conform to the recent US Supreme Court decision regarding document translation services (previously reported on this blog) and the taxation of costs statute.

You can access the Bill of Costs Guide here.

 

In sum, on page 10, the Guide states that translation services are not taxable costs.
