Minnesota Budget Surplus and taxes on your Pension and SS

Minnesota has a $17.6 billion surplus. Up from last year’s surplus of about $7 billion!
MNPEA believes all Public Employees are overtaxed! There should be no State income Tax on your Pension and no State income tax on your Social Security.

Our neighbor to the West, South Dakota does not tax pension income or Social Security. Our neighbor to the East, Wisconsin does not tax Social Security income nor does our Southern neighbor Iowa. Minnesota is alone among our neighbors who do not tax Social Security. No wonder so many retirees move across the border.

Taxes in general should be lower, but especially for Union workers who have worked and paid taxes all of their lives and are now on fixed retirement incomes. It’s double dipping.

The State of Minnesota needs to support their retired Union members
