Minnesotans are receiving their 2018 Proposed Property Tax Statements. For years, Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) has worked on options to assist agricultural landowners with escalating property taxes. In 2017, the Minnesota Legislature passed a 40 percent credit on the portion of agricultural land that goes towards school debt bond levies. The 2018 proposed tax statements reflects the 40 percent credit as related to school bond levies.
Check the school building bond credit on your property tax statements to see your membership dollars at work. MFBF will continue to work with everyone involved to find sustainable solutions addressing property taxes and the stresses it places on agricultural landowners, while maintaining strong schools.
