Property tax concerns span nation

Property tax increases bother many Minnesotans, but the National Conference of State Legislatures says they are not alone.

At least 21 states this year considered or are still considering property tax relief of some sort, the conference reports. But there is no single solution to the problem.

That problem may not be as Minnesota specific as Gopher state residents think.

Minnesota's per-person property tax payments are the 28th highest in the country, putting the state far lower on the list than many other taxes. New Jersey is the most-taxed state when it comes to property, collecting more than twice as much per person than Minnesota.
