MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A new poll says a narrow majority of Minnesotans favors Gov. Mark Dayton's proposal to raise taxes on the state's top earners. The poll also finds support for imposing sales tax on clothing items above $100. But there's strong resistance to Dayton's proposal to extend the sales tax to business services.
The Star Tribune Minnesota Poll published Sunday found that 54% favor and 39% oppose higher taxes on net incomes above $150,000 for individuals and $250,000 for couples. Forty-nine percent favor and 42% oppose the clothing tax. But 63% oppose extending the sales tax to business services, with 28% in favor.
The telephone poll of 800 Minnesotans, conducted Feb. 25-27, has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.5%age points.
