Telecom equipment tax exemptions clear House – onto Senate next

According to the Pioneer Press

Gov. Mark Dayton wants to use half of the state’s $1.2 billion budget surplus for tax relief, and the Minnesota House gave him most of what he’s after by passing a $503 million package of tax cuts on a 126-2 vote Thursday. …

He also called for repealing all three business-to-business sales taxes that he and the DFL-controlled Legislature passed last year, which would result in a $232 million tax cut.

These taxes include the telecom equipment tax…

For businesses, Dayton’s plan and the House bill would eliminate sales taxes on telecommunications equipment and repairs of electronic and commercial equipment, in addition to preventing the warehousing tax from starting.

Next step – the Senate.
