Minnesota´s Snowbird Tax
Wall Street Journal, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:tocsin, 2/1/2013 11:47:22 AM

You may have heard it can get cold in Minnesota in January, or for that matter in April. Last week the temperature dropped to seven below zero in the Twin Cities, which is one reason many Midwesterners head to Florida or Arizona for the winter. But now Governor Mark Dayton wants to tax the snowbirds even if they are no longer legally state residents. "There is a snowbird tax—absolutely," the Democratic Governor told reporters the other day. "It´s one of the unfairnesses that somebody can spend six months and one day out of the state

Fly little snowbird. There are States which do not act as crime lords demanding their ´´street tax.´´

A perfect way to drive people out of your state governor. You are truly a fool.

Sounds like a lot of snowbirds will only be coming back for brief visits to the grandkids and funerals for the folks who didn´t leave.

A snowbird friend of mine from Wisconsin who spent his winters in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas (and moved his residency here, since Texas has no state income tax) told me the joke that when somebody in Iowa dies in the winter, they have to call their friends in Texas to come back as pallbearers.

No sympathy from me. Minnesota is a solid blue state, with Dems in control of all 3 branches of state government.
Even if you are a part time resident of Minn, chances are you are a Dem.

So we have a Dem government screwing over Dem citizens. Works for me. Tax ´em more.

#3 is on to something. Many of these snowbirds aren´t willing to pay their "fair share" -- what´s up with that? They vote for the policies and expect others to pay....oh, right. They´re Dems.

There are lots of Republicans and libertarians in Minnesota. Just not enough of them.

This google-eyed twelve-stepping nutcase governor can run the table with his DFL House and Senae. They´ll continue to chase the productive and the wealthy out of the state. And if they extend sales tax to clothing, they kill the Mall of America and the shopping tourism it generates. Idiots.

This would be an interesting subject for a court test.
I have a dim recollection of California, a few decades ago, trying to impose income taxes on people who retired and moved away from California. If my memory serves me, the legal theory advanced by california was that since the individuals earned pension credits while employed in the state, their pensions should be subject to california income taxes.
California lost in court.
Dayton was a lousy senator, so they make him governor. How about voter logic on that?
In addition, it would take a huge bureaucracy to try to enforce the income tax as proposed. But that would mean more democrat votes, right?

#6 is right about the impact on malls in MN. Our Dakota relatives do most of their back-to-school shopping at The Mall of America because there´s no sales tax on clothes. They stay overnight in MN, eat out, treat the kids to all the rides in the mall, etc. If there´s a tax on clothing, they might as well shop at home or Amazon.

I confess to knowing little about Minnesota, but who are the people in the state who keep voting for Democrats? Farmers are usually practical people who see through collectivist BS. Does the state have a huge dependent class? Does Minneapolis St. Paul overwhelm the rest of the population?

Never understood this six months and a day nonsense. If you want to live in a no-income-tax state, move, and stay there. I believe that some conservative states like Alabama already have you base your income tax liability on the number of months that you are in residence there. Seems fair enough.

As a resident of Arizona, we see the migration every year based on the seasonal changes. See as many Minnesota plates as those of any other. Local businesses surely like it as they create standing room only in resturants during their stay here. I am uncertain as to how the state views them regarding their state tax obligation, but since anybody who can own two homes in states that are so far apart along with paying for the gas to drive between the two, qualifies as "rich" in my book. And we know most Democrats really support taxing all the "rich" folks. Decision time for a lot of Liberals.

Expect more "Claw-back" at the Estate level too. NY taxes the entire estate if any part of it is in NY. I see a flood of "gifting" soon to arrive on those second homes...coupled with "management Companies" based in low/no tax states being written up as Owners. Current owners will just visit and "Rent", plus deduct the business expense, mail forwarding will make enforcement even tougher. Try declaring every "Motorhome" built in Minnesota taxable as a resident too.

It has been a busy few weeks for the Securities and Exchange Commission. In May, the SEC charged two cities—Harrisburg, Pa., and South Miami, Fla.—with securities fraud for allegedly deceiving investors in their municipal bonds. This follows similar fraud charges against states, New Jersey in 2010 and Illinois in March, after SEC investigators uncovered what they called "material omissions" and "false statements" in bond documents related to those state´s pension funds. With Harrisburg, however, the SEC has gone further and charged the city government with "securities fraud

Lois Lerner, the IRS official in charge of tax-exempt groups, took her too-clever-by-half act to Congress yesterday and may have waived her right to claim her Fifth Amendment privilege in the process. Appearing before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, she couldn’t resist citing a little history, bragging on her public service, instructing the committee as to the purpose of the Fifth Amendment, and proclaiming her innocence of everything the committee might be interested in — all before asserting her Fifth Amendment privilege. Chairman Darrell Issa (R., Calif.) was a bit taken aback.

A jury in Pennsylvania has convicted abortionist Kermit Gosnell of three counts of murder, one count of involuntary manslaughter, and several counts of performing illegal late-term abortions at his facility in West Philadelphia. Gosnell is eligible for the death sentence, an end that would be as close to justice as earthly powers can mete out in this episode. The English language does not contain a word sufficient for describing the crimes of Kermit Gosnell; “murder” will do, but only for legal purposes. Gosnell’s human abattoir is the logical endpoint of our morally fraudulent national approach to abortion,

The expanding Internal Revenue Service scandal could hardly be any more Drudgeriffic. Well, maybe if in addition to singling out groups with “tea party” or “patriot” in their names, the agency had purchased a few billions rounds of hollow-point ammo. Maybe then. But even as is, the scandal is looking pretty bad and getting worse. The Wall Street Journal is now reporting that the IRS also “scrutinized conservative groups for raising political concerns over government spending, debt and taxes or even for advocating making America a better place to live.” We’ll see where this eventually goes.

Last Christmas Eve, his 18th behind bars, Catholic priest Gordon MacRae offered Mass in his cell at the New Hampshire state penitentiary. A quarter-ounce of unfermented wine and the host had been provided for the occasion, celebrated with the priest´s cellmate in attendance. Sentenced to 33½-67 years following his 1994 conviction for sexual assault against a teenage male, Father MacRae has just turned 60. The path that led inexorably to that conviction would have been familiar to witnesses of the manufactured sex-abuse prosecutions that swept the nation in the 1980s and early 1990s

Next week, the Senate will begin making changes to and, hopefully, improve the immigration-reform legislation I introduced with several colleagues last month. This part of the process is a chance to fix America´s broken immigration system and end today´s de facto amnesty for those who live here illegally. It will also show that Washington can work when leaders listen to the American people and invoke their wisdom in debates and legislative work. In January, I outlined my principles for conservative immigration reform in these pages—principles that guided the drafting of this legislation.

Last summer, in the dead of night, three peace activists penetrated the exterior of Y-12 in Tennessee, supposedly one of the most secure nuclear-weapons facilities in the United States. A drifter, an 82-year-old nun and a house painter. They face trial next week on charges that fall under the sabotage section of the U.S. criminal code. And if they had been terrorists armed with explosives, intent on mass destruction? That nightmare scenario underlies the government’s response to the intrusion.

There are several unattractive parts of the Affordable Care Act, but perhaps the most unattractive is a little-discussed board that has the power to dramatically alter Medicare. The Independent Payment Advisory Board has the power to reshape Medicare to meet a budget, and Congress has only limited ability to stop it. It is imperative we move quickly to repeal the board. Starting this year, the law requires the chief actuary of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to determine annually by April 30 whether cuts will need to be made to Medicare in the following years.
