Jeff Bertram this week announced to all taxpayers that a special state program still exists that might provide a refund to people whose property taxes increase sharply-and he has good reason to know about it. The program is known as targeted relief, he said, which he supported when it was created by ' the Legislature in 1989. It applies to people whose property taxes increase more than I0 percent from one year to the next. refunded. The state will reimburse most people for up to 75 percent of the amount of increase above 10 percent in their property taxes, if it's over $40. Rep. Bertram said many people are confused about the state's role in property taxes. "The state does not collect, or property tax statement." He said there are very good reasons for moderate property tax increases. Property taxes are used for essential services like operating schools, aiding local governments in meeting state mandates, paying for police and fire protection, and helping construct city and school buildings with bonds. "However, enough increases quickly get to a point where they can be a big burden for any average family, and that's when the state steps in to provide additional relief," Pep. Bertram said. He suggested people whose property taxes increased more than 10 percent this year compared to last year should write to his office to request the form, (Room 571, State fice Building, St. Paul, MN 55155) and he'll send one out to file with the state. He said part of the eligibility for the refund depends on taxpayers' annual income; the program is designed to help the people who need it the most, those who have relatively low incomes compared to their tax bills.
