--10 Worst States for Retirement:
No. 9: Minnesota
Bad Place To Retire wrote:
the statistics are clear. Minnesota is a tough place for retirees.

Not only does it have a high cost of living; the weather is among the coldest in the nation. And the Tax Foundation estimates that state and local taxes amount to 10.8 percent of income, which includes sales, property and other taxes -- the seventh highest in the country.http://finance.yahoo.c om/news/10-worst-states-for-re tirement-153214340.html

6. Minnesota
Minnesota's ranking takes a beating for its corporate tax rate, which is among the highest in the nation at 9.8 percent and is ranked 44th out of 50 states. Minnesota is also 44th in individual income taxes, 40th in unemployment insurance taxes and 35th in sales taxes. Minnesota not only has an Alternative Minimum Tax on individual incomes, but also has an AMT on corporations.

Minnesota: One of the Worst States to Work and Start a Business
AFP Minnesota wrote:
“Minnesota is one of the worst states in the nation to work and do business,” said AFP Foundation-Wisconsin State Director John Cooney.“Minnesota’s population growth is in line with Wisconsin’s and lags massively behind the national average. This is due in large part to Minnesota’s loss of private sector jobs, dismal tax climate, and growing state debt.”

The report found Minnesota’s private sector lost more than 57,000 jobs from 2000 to 2010 while state government jobs increased by more than 12%. In addition, Minnesota was ranked as the 43rd-worst tax climate for businesses in the U.S. and was ranked 42nd in the nation for small business survival and entrepreneurship. Even worse, Minnesota state spending has increased by more than 600% since 1960 and state debt has grown by 473%.

Cooney continued,“If Minnesota was a more attractive state to live and work in, it wouldn’t lag behind national population growth. In order to create desperately-needed jobs and income growth, Minnesota must lower taxes, remove intrusive regulations, and decrease government spending and debt.”

“Minnesotans and businesses must have the greatest control over their money in order to make our state not only a prosperous place to live, but also an economically competitive place to do business.”
