This article reports that three members of the American Marketing Association's Minnesota Chapter recently testified against a proposed sales tax on service businesses by the Senate Tax Committee of the Minnesota legislature. Minnesota was trying to overcome a projected $750 million deficit by generating new revenues. The Committee was considering a bill that would impose a 5% tax on all service businesses, including advertising agencies. It was feared that the proposed tax would have placed Minnesota research houses at a competitive disadvantage with researchers in other states.
