In Minnesota, 69 cents of every dollar state and local governments collect next year will come from sources other than the individual income tax, according to estimates in the Department of Revenue’s latest Tax Incidence Study. State and local property taxes account for the biggest share of the burden, about 35 cents on the dollar. Another big-ticket item is the sales (or consumption) tax — about 30 cents.
