Minnesota Storage Tax Problems

I've several times about the problem of states broadening their sales tax to pick up goods or services consumed by businesses. States should not do this as it exacerbates the pyramiding problem and it makes the tax more complex. A recent example of moving down the wrong path of base broadening is Minnesota. This state starts taxing some storage fees starting April 1, 2014.

For more, please see my January 24, 2014 tax policy post at

Any base broadening should only cover consumption of individuals (non-businesses).

HF 1777 signed into law on 3/21/14 includes several tax changes including repeal of this new sales tax expansion to storage, effective before it was to start on 4/1/14.
