Each year the League prepares an annual property tax report that contains levy and rate information for all cities in Minnesota. (The report and property tax data are also published in the September-October issue of Minnesota Cities magazine.) Supplementary information to the reports is also featured.
This property tax information is intended for city officials and staff to use for preparing city budgets, communicating with city residents, and understanding how the tax base and tax rates change over time. The tax tables use data from the Minnesota Department of Revenue to present a wide range of information in an accessible way. City officials and staff can learn the makeup of the local tax base, the different tax rates that apply in their community, and calculate estimated taxes on homes. Historical data is included here to allow for looking at trends over time.
If you have questions or need assistance analyzing the tax data further, contact League Policy Analysis Manager Rachel Walker at firstname.lastname@example.org.

2017 Reports Delayed
The League usually publishes a property tax report in the September-October issue of Minnesota Cities magazine and online using data from the Minnesota Department of Revenue (DOR). However, the information used for the report has been delayed this year because the DOR is going through a significant transition to a new database system called PRISM.
At the end of September, the DOR reported that seven counties are still working on submitting their data to the department.
The information will be posted here 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.
