An assessment of proposed property tax changesby Cathy Wurzer, Minnesota Public Radio
ST. PAUL, Minn. — Next year, hundreds of thousands of Minnesotans could get more money back from state property tax rebates. That is, if the DFL House passes a plan proposed this week.
They want to increase property tax refunds and renters credits by $250 million over the next two years. DFL leaders say it's intended to provide targeted "relief" to homeowners, who have paid rising property taxes across the state in the last decade.
MPR's Cathy Wurzer spoke with Mark Haveman, executive director of the Minnesota Center for Fiscal Excellence, formerly known as the Minnesota Taxpayers Association, about the proposal and whether it reforms the system.
