The House Taxes Committee has released its proposed omnibus tax bill. It does not include the Housing Tax Credits for Contribution Fund (H.F. 4072 S. Anderson).
Lawmakers need to hear your voice NOW. There is still time to amend the bill in the House Taxes Committee tomorrow, 4/24, and the House Ways and Means Committee on Wednesday, 4/25. By contacting key legislators and voicing your support, you can play a critical role in ensuring that this simple, effective tool makes it across the finish line.
PLEASE CALL the Committee Chairs, Rep. Greg Davids (R-28B) and Rep. Jim Knoblach (R-14B), to voice your support and ask them to include the Housing Tax Credits for Contribution Fund in the omnibus taxes bill.
- Rep. Greg Davids (R-28B), Chair House Taxes Committee: 651-296-9278
- Rep. Jim Knoblach (R-14B), Chair Ways and Means Committee: 651-296-6612
"Please support the inclusion of the MN Housing Tax Credits for Contribution Fund — HF 4072 authored by Rep. Sara Anderson — in the tax omnibus bill. This program is proven and effective, leveraging $5 from private and federal resources for every dollar invested by the state. This tool encourages business and individuals to invest in housing — and will create thousands of housing units."
PLEASE TWEET your thanks to Rep. Sarah Anderson (R-44A), Chief Author. of H.F. 4072, to thank her for her leadership in advancing this needed tool.
Thanks, @Rep_SAnderson, for your leadership in advancing the #HousingTaxCredit (HF 4072), a proven tool needed in communities across MN!
