Taxpayers are one step closer to getting clarity on Minnesota's tax laws as the Senate Tax Committee finally sent a bill (HF 1777 - Senate language) to the floor addressing federal tax conformity. A fix for the “marriage penalty” and relief for taxpayers that had a short-sale of their home in 2013 were among the tax issues included in the bill.
Recently our area has experienced a drastic increase in the price of propane. This price increase is very detrimental to our way of life here in greater Minnesota. I have been in contact with the governor’s office as well as members of the federal delegation in an effort to reduce these prices. Due to that contact the federal government lifted some weight restrictions which are helping some.
