Dear [Decision Maker],

Thank you for your work on Social Security tax relief. Minnesota is one of a few states that taxes Social Security benefits to the fullest extent allowed under federal law. While some retirees are exempt from the tax, the exemption level income thresholds haven't been raised in 30 years.

Please support the House provision on Social Security tax relief which raises the exemption levels and adjusts them for inflation to reflect today's dollars.

A growing number of Minnesota retirees are relying on Social Security for the majority of their income and cost of living adjustments - when they happen at all - are small and don't keep up with increases in healthcare costs and other necessary consumer goods and services. Providing tax relief for retirees is one way state government can help people make ends meet.
