Despite a multi-billion tax increase passed by Democrats last year and Governor Dayton’s public promise that it would be used to “property tax reductions for the 100 percent,” of Minnesotans, the latest projections from the MN Department of Revenue show property tax increases for the state.
From the Star Tribune (Nov 2012): “The early numbers show Minnesota cities’ property taxes increasing 2.1 percent, counties’ up 1.5 percent and townships’ up 2.1 percent.”
Minnesota Democrats and Governor Dayton promised property tax relief when they passed their giant “tax the rich” bill. Now they admit the state doesn’t really control local property taxes, in spite of their promise otherwise.
Did they unknowingly fake out the public? Did they not know what was in the bill? Or did they just get caught when their scheme didn’t work?
Minnesota deserves competent leaders who will keep their promises!
