Re: Vikes Promote Economic and Stadium Development Plan
That's true. Minnesota does not charge sales tax on cloths or food from a grocery store or convenience store. restaraunts have sales tax.
No, the sales tax is 70 cents on $100, which works out to less than a penny a dollar. It is only a .007% increase, and it would only be applicable on purchases in Anoka County. Basically it means that a $0.99 bottle of pop would cost $1.07 instead of $1.06 after taxes...
And it isn't a stupid question. I wish more people who did not know would ask instead of just assume. The biggest opposition to the stadium deal is misinformation. There are people out there saying that a new stadium deal would keep grandma from being able to buy her medication and Junior out of clothes... but it just isn't the case.
Hopefully the PR
firm that Wilf hired will be able to shed some light on the subject.
To be honest with you, I believe Minnesota doesn't even charge sales tax on clothing or food. So the tax wouldn't even apply to those items.
