Tax bill still on table if Minnesota Legislature convenes Special Session
The director of public policy for Minnesota Farm Bureau is unsure about a special session.
Amber Glaeser says the 2022 legislative session officially adjourned Monday with a lot of bills left on the table.
“There were some agreements (and) some bills that were close to agreements, so the Governor and leadership met on Monday after the session ended and kind of talked through things. From what we know they’re still talking, but members wanted to get home for a while and kind of regroup. So we’ll see.”
She tells Brownfield if a special session occurs, Farm Bureau will be watching the tax package that includes expansion of the Beginning Farmer Tax Credit, estate tax portability, and an increase to the Ag to School Tax Credit.
“And the biggest piece of the tax credit (that) the public is watching and the parties were working on was the Social Security Income Tax piece. So a lot of things that could be done in a tax bill and we know they came to an agreement, but that was one of the pieces that was going to be left until they worked through all the other kind of pieces of the other committee bills.”
Glaeser says it’s hard to predict what elected officials will do but she’s going to be optimistic about the chances of a special session.
