Minn. Property Tax Report Paints Scattered Picture

Created: 03/03/2014 10:58 AM WDIO.com

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The final tally of property taxes due this year presents a mixed bag, with levies rising in some places but falling in others.

The Minnesota Department of Revenue has posted jurisdiction-by-jurisdiction details on levies approved by counties, cities, townships, school districts and other taxing entities.

According to the data, levies are up in 58 counties and are flat or falling in the remaining 29. There are 470 cities that imposed at least some levy increase while 378 have no change or are cutting their levies.

Value, location and type of property determine individual property tax bills.

In all, taxing authorities will collect $125 million more than in 2013. But lawmakers also approved $133 million in extra refunds and credits that qualifying homeowners can claim.
