Minnesota Tax Court Rulings
Updated June 2023
Tax Court legislation was not debated during the 2023 legislative session. Cities Management, Inc. filed an appeal asking the Minnesota Supreme Court to provide clarification related to Tax Court rulings. The MNCPA filed an amicus brief supporting Cities Management, Inc in its case versus the Commissioner of Revenue.
This issue continues to be a concern and will be one the MNCPA continues to monitor.
Tax professionals and businesses often rely on Tax Court rulings when deciding what position to take on future tax questions. Consistent application of the law and guidance from tax administrators is required so taxpayers can properly comply with the laws.
Why you should care
In the past there has been some uncertainty about who the Tax Court opinions apply to and whether taxpayers can rely on the opinions for guidance.
The MNCPA supports legislation to amend current statute and clarify who is bound by Tax Court decisions and how the decisions can be appealed.
What you can do
Contact your legislators
and ask them to support legislation to provide tax advisers and taxpayers more certainty when filing a tax return.
