Minnesota county claims man's deer stand is a "permanent structure," thus they want to make him pay property tax on it!

Minnesota? I'm not sure, but I do think that it's run by Democrats, so wha'd you expect? If it doesn't move, they TAX it! And maybe even if it DOES move!

I think they are competeing with Illinois' Democrats to see who can tax itself into prosperity first....like it's ever been done before!

Anyone with common sense would be ashamed to make such a ridiculous statement.

He's just still mad at his parents for naming him "Gale", so he's trying to make life hard for someone else.

Preposterous! Ridiculous! But not exactly laughable. This is a classic example of some slimy, incompetent, low-level local official, making a silly decision and then holding his ground, like he is doing something terribly important. All this over a potential annual charge of $40.00.
Eventually, this will be properly resolved, likely when someone a bit higher in the local chain of command tells this stupid person to back away from his previous ruling. It is, I'm sure, a source of concern to the owner of this tree stand. Another example of freedom being challenged by a so-called Public Servant. When was the last time you received any sort of "Service" from a Public Servant? Most of them think they are special, when the fact of the matter is, from what I've observed over a good many years, that most Public Servants could be readily replaced by simply grabbing someone randomly off the street.
Of course this is just my opinion.

Next they'll require us to stop by the DMV to get plates for our climbing stands.

This is outrageous. He already paid sales tax on the stand itself. I'm thinking double taxation???

Maybe he should change his occupation to a professional hunter so he could write off every other hunting related expense as a business deduction?

I think our politicians, local, state and federal, are a bunch of crooks. This is pathetic. Taxing is not the answer rather the slime ball politicians need to STOP SPENDING our money on nonsense. Then they wouldn't need to keep their hands in our wallets!

Well, if Minnesotans can call Al Franken a senator, it's not much of a stretch to call a deer stand a permanent structure.
