Truth in Taxation




The legal reference can be found in the 2012 Laws, Chapter 287 (below)

Sec. 9. Minnesota Statutes 2010, section 162.081, subdivision 4, is amended to read:

Subd. 4. Formula for distribution to towns; purposes. (a) Money apportioned to a county from the town road account must be distributed to the treasurer of each town within  the county, according to a distribution formula adopted by the county board. The formula must take into account each town's levy for road and bridge purposes, its population and town road mileage, and other factors the county board deems advisable in the interests of achieving equity among the towns. Distribution of town road funds to each town treasurer must be made by March 1, annually, or within 30 days after receipt of payment from the commissioner. Distribution of funds to town treasurers in a county which has not adopted a distribution formula under this subdivision must be made according to a formula prescribed by the commissioner by rule. A formula adopted by a county board or by the commissioner must provide that a town, in order to be eligible for distribution of funds from the town road account in a calendar year, must have levied for taxes payable in the previous year for road and bridge purposes at least 0.04835 percent of taxable market value. For purposes of this eligibility requirement, taxable market value means taxable market value for taxes payable two years prior to the aid distribution year. (b) Money distributed to a town under this subdivision may be expended by the town only for the construction, reconstruction, and gravel maintenance of town roads within the town.
