House GOP suggests tax rebate checks
ST. PAUL -- House Republicans want to mail tax rebate checks to more than 1 million Minnesotans, a plan Democrats call an election-year gimmick.
Homeowners would receive checks worth 10 percent of their property tax bills, making the average check $205. They would arrive by Oct. 1, two weeks before most property tax payments are due. That is slightly more than a month before the general election.
