The new Sales Tax - How to save Money
Since others have highlighted the legislators who stuck with this tax for pork bill -
I decided to focus on one of the other groups responsible and benefiting from the pork.
The Minnesota Chamber of Commerce -
A list of the members is available, but like most large organizations (AARP for instance) most people join not for the politics but for other benefits.
So if you are a member, I would suggest you cancel your membership and use the money you save to pay those taxes.
But that is not to say that there is no one to hold accountable - Namely the board of directors. Here is a list of the companies who have representative on the board.
Kindly let them know why you will no longer be supporting their establishment - You need to save the money to pay for all the new taxes and fees.
