Minnesota Overcharges Taxpayers $1.9 Billion Last Year; Critics Urge The State To Return The Funds

Pile of Money
Ingram Publishing

Following news that the State of Minnesota is expected to see a $1.9 billion surplus at the end of the year, critics are urging lawmakers to return the money to taxpayers.

Some policy officials at the state capital are looking for ways to utilize the funds within the budget – but that call has come with criticism.  Jason Flohrs – the State Director for the Americans for Prosperity suggests that the collection of excess taxes needs to come back as a refund:

“[…] usually, when I’m overcharged, I expect to see some kind of refund. With the Governor now retracting his gas tax proposal and government coffers overflowing, it’s time for Minnesota lawmakers to get serious about reducing taxes and putting money back in the pockets of Minnesota taxpayers.”

One of the suggestions in St. Paul from lawmakers is to utilize the extra funds to make improvements to roads and bridges.
