Taxed Enough Already

These are the words of a growing number of citizens as they voice their concerns about the way our government is being run. Evidently some Minnesota legislators feel that a number of citizens (maybe ones that are not as newsworthy) would be willing to pay more taxes. Rep. Peggy Scott, Republican from Andover has sponsored the "I'm Not Taxed Enough Already Checkoff" bill (HF 3566). This bill would provide taxpayers the chance to make a voluntary contribution of at least $1 to the General Fund. There is a companion bill in the Senate (SF 3197) sponsored by Senator Amy Koch, Republican from Buffalo. The checkoff would be on the Minnesota state tax return. end
