New Minnesota Law Saves Green For Greens

New Minnesota Law Saves Green For Greens

On July 31st a new state tax law took effect that will make certain energy efficient products free of the state 6.5% sales tax. Minnesota residents will no longer be paying state sales tax on items such as compact fluorescent light bulbs (with the Energy Star label), photovoltaic solar paneling, and energy efficient hot water heaters. Lawmakers based the decision for this new legislation on the fact that Minnesota residents incur much greater costs in the long run for energy inefficient products than will be lost in state revenues from this tax cut.
