Provide relief to married taxpayers by increasing income tax on wealthy Minnesotans
The plan, from Sen. Larry Pogemiller, DFL-Minneapolis, would provide relief to 419,000 married taxpayers who are
stuck with a higher tab than they would if they were single filers.
It also softens a tax quirk - known as the alternative minimum tax
- that is increasingly costing some middle-income earners more
money. To pay for the changes, taxes would go up on income above
$270,000 for couples and $180,000 for single filers. (AP)
