No business tax on paper (new law)

Out-of-state customers don’t have to pay the state’s business tax on paper they provide to printing companies.

A new law, signed April 6 by Gov. Tim Pawlenty and effective for taxable years beginning after Dec. 31, 2008, states that when an out-of-state customer provides paper or other media to a Minnesota printer for printing jobs for that same customer, doing so does not allow Minnesota to impose its corporate franchise tax on the customer. This exception does not apply if the out-of-state customer is part of the same unitary business as the printing company.

The law is sponsored by Rep. Loren Solberg (DFL-Grand Rapids) and Sen. Tom Bakk (DFL-Cook).
