House goes for property tax breaks
ST. PAUL — The Minnesota House wants to cut taxes $103 million more than the state already has this year, with half of the relief coming in property taxes.
A bill representatives passed 125-0 Friday adds to $443 million in tax cuts already approved.
The new bill is "heavily focused on property tax cuts for farmers, homeowners and renters," said House Tax Chairwoman Ann Lenczewski, D-Bloomington.
About $45 million of the tax relief is designated to trim property taxes.
