Ward backs House bill that alters property tax assistance in state
Rep. John Ward, DFL-Brainerd, supported a property tax relief bill that passed the House this week, citing a Homestead Credit State Refund that links property taxes to an owner's ability to pay.
He said any homeowner in the state who earns under $200,000 and pays more than 2 percent of their income in property taxes will be eligible for this refund. Ward said that in the last six years statewide property taxes in Minnesota have increased by 59 percent and homeowner's property taxes have increased by 81 percent.
An amendment offered by Ward to repeal the tax-exempt status for seasonal property for school operating levies failed to get the support it needed to pass.
Planning commission to meet Wednesday
The Brainerd Planning Commission will meet at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Brainerd City Hall.
