Senate plan would raise all income taxes
ST. PAUL - The Minnesota Senate will consider raising all state income taxes, with married couples earning more than $250,000 annually being taxed at a new, higher 9.25 percent rate.
Higher income taxes are the key to the Democratic-Farmer-Laborite controlled Senate plan that raises taxes $2 billion all told.
Today's announcement sets up a three-way tax battle with the House and Gov. Tim Pawlenty.
