Rep. Jennifer Loon's legislation to create a tax reform action commission was discussed in the House Tax Committee on February 9. (HF1822, companion SF1712) The House Public Information Office wrote a Session Daily article about it, "Tax Reform Could Go to Tax Commission." Regardless of whether the new tax reform action commission is enacted, it prompted us to put similar earlier reports online.
The best-known former tax commission, published in 1985 and informally known as the Latimer Report, is online. ( Volume 1 Volume 2) We've also scanned a background paper done for that commission, The Optimal Progressivity of the Minnesota Tax System: A Presentation and Analysis of the Important Issues.
The newly-scanned earlier tax study commission reports are the Report of the Governor's Minnesota State Tax Study Committee from 1962, the 1954 Report of the Minnesota Tax Study Commission, and the Report of the Minnesota Interim Committee on Tax Research from 1951.
