Prior to then-Gov. Tim Pawlenty nixing the program in 2009, our states had an agreement for 41 years that allowed citizens who worked in one state but lived in another to file a single state tax return. The system wasn't perfect, but it worked for border communities like Red Wing, Bay City, etc.
Our two states have numerous agreements that enhance life for citizens and create economic opportunities. Tax reciprocity needs to be among them again.
