I’m all for paying my fair share with taxes and am of the persuasion that taxes aren’t inherently evil per se, but 40% of what Minnesotans now pay for beer already goes to taxes. The legislature recently passed a bill that more than doubles the tax on beer as well as the sales tax on alcohol. Ugh. From what I’m told, we’re already pay more taxes on beer in Minnesota than all bordering states – 20% higher than South Dakota, 22% higher than North Dakota, 33% higher than Iowa and 81% higher than Wisconsin.
Contact your legislator… taxes go up, yeah, but double?!
