Minnesota Small Businesses Support Investment, not Tax Cuts

Sign the petition to call on policymakers to invest in Minnesota's future by strengthening education from pre-school to college, expanding access to affordable childcare, and by supporting strong and vibrant communities. More than tax cuts we need investment in our communities!

In the 2018 Session, Minnesota legislators will decide how to conform the state's tax code with the Federal tax bill.  

Recent changes to our tax policy have made Minnesota’s taxes fairer for people at all income levels and the new resources allow us to build a budget that pays for the priorities Minnesotans value. As small business owners, we want  to continue the trend of investing in our communities and local economies.

Unfortunately, there is already talk of large and unsustainable tax cuts that focus on those with the highest income and the largest corporations. A repeal of the state property tax, cutting the estate tax, and exemptions to the state’s top income tax rate will not grow the economy or help small business owners. Instead, these changes leave out everyday Minnesotans and small business owners who are more likely to spend or invest their dollars in the local economy.

Some of these proposals grow dramatically over time, threatening the state’s ability to fund our schools, health care, transportation and transit, and other critical public services.

Instead, it’s time to invest in strategies that lead to broader prosperity and allow all Minnesotans to fully participate in the economic recovery.

Budget choices should prioritize things that benefit everyday Minnesotans across the state.

Now is the time for policymakers to invest in the state’s future by strengthening education from pre-school to college, expanding access to affordable childcare, and by supporting strong and vibrant communities. 

These investments will pay off by building the quality workforce and high standard of living that have been the keystones of Minnesota’s economic success.

    I’ll absolutely sign the petition, whatever I can do to support investment and job growth. Two things I believe are the most valuable to the economy now and in the future.

    Investments should bring about job creation and more flow of cash. Cuts would dampen the chance for any of this happening.
