St. Paul, MN (NNCNOW.com) - Minnesota lawmakers in both the House and Senate have come to an agreement on a tax bill that includes a half percent Duluth tourism tax.
The measure dubbed "Tax Bill 2" focuses on reductions in property taxes for homeowners, renters and farmers, totaling $103 million.
It also calls for a temporary one half percent food, beverage and lodging tax in Duluth. The collections would be to help fund development in West Duluth.
The House and Senate are likely to take up the Tax Bill for final passage next week.
If the tourism tax is OK'ed by the full legislature, the measure would still need a thumbs up from the Duluth City Council.
