Unbelievable actions

To the Editor:

Thanks to the irresponsible actions of the Minnesota Legislature, the entire income filing tax process for Minnesota has been put on hold until April 3. This has happened in the past, and yet our legislators continue to turn our lives upside down with their actions.

I understand the need and desire to conform to federal tax changes, but to do so several months after the year-end and to make the changes retroactive is inexcusable.

What makes this even more maddening is that the changes are being made to conform to changes that were enacted at the federal level on Jan. 3, 2013.
