Editorial: Property tax uprising is brewing in suburbs
The headline, according to some county administrators, is the property tax is up because the Minnesota Legislature, rather than increase a state-level tax, chose to eliminate the homestead tax credit.

From the article:
"In Dakota County, based on all 2011 property tax levies, a home with value of $164,200 would be taxed $51 more due to the loss of the tax credit..."
I am certain that all the lower-middle income families that are now paying higher property taxes are EAGER to do so -- if that is what it takes to protect our state's millionaires from ANY additional income tax. Far better for those lower-income folk to pony up another $51.00 than ask any millionaire for ONE MORE DOLLAR.
Republicans rob from the poor and middle class -- and give to the rich! They are Robin Hood in Reverse.

The rich always win..
The rich are NOT all GOP or DFL.
All elected officials are taking bribes, all are rich.
