The League continues to receive inquiries about payable 2017 and 2018 tax data, but as of April 12, 2019, it is still not available from the Minnesota Department of Revenue (DOR).
The reason for the extended delay, according to DOR staff, is that there have been problems integrating the data for a few counties into the DOR’s new database system, PRISM. League staff have repeatedly inquired about whether preliminary data could be shared while the database issues are addressed. DOR staff recently clarified that they are unable to share the preliminary data publicly.
The League will continue to press DOR to make data available, as the significant delays make it harder for cities to prepare their budgets and to communicate with the public. The information will be posted on the League’s website as soon as it is available. Stay tuned to the LMC Cities Bulletin to find out when the property tax report and accompanying information is available online.
