What is Truth in Taxation?

“Truth in Taxation” (TnT) is a process first enacted by the legislature in 1988 to enhance public participation in Minnesota’s property tax system. You can read more about Truth in Taxation here.

The TnT process consists of these three components:

  • Each local government is required to formally adopt a “proposed levy” in September for the upcoming year; the final levy, when ultimately adopted, may not exceed the proposed levy.
  • County auditors generate parcel-specific notices of proposed taxes for all parcels of property based on the proposed levies.
  • Each local government is required to hold a public meeting after the notices come out where budget and tax issues are discussed, and where public testimony must be allowed, prior to adopting its final levy.

TnT has a goal of improving accountability by focusing taxpayers on the relationship between budget decisions and property taxes, and providing taxpayers with a greater opportunity to become involved in the local government budgeting process.
