Late Thursday, the Minnesota Revenue Department released a two-page list of what would be newly taxed under Gov. Mark Dayton's plan.
The governor's proposal would cut the current sales tax from 6.875 to 5.5 percent but extend it to all sorts of new items and services. Importantly, the plan would charge sales taxes on business-to-business services, which would bring in billions to the state coffers.
Rep. Roz Peterson, R-Lakeville, said at a Monday news conference that a constituent had contacted her after receiving a voter registration form from MNsure, the state-run health insurance exchange, even though the person in question is already registered to vote and does not purchase health insurance through MNsure.
