ITR Calls for Two-Year Property Tax Freeze

We think it would be a good idea to implement a two-year property tax freeze in Iowa, so that we can press pause and take a look at some ideas to reform the system. We don’t believe that this gets solved in one year. It’s taken many years to get to this point. Property taxes in Iowa are the 10th highest in the nation and, as assessments are going up, Iowans are going to be faced with increasing property tax bills.

Trying to Escape Unreasonable Property Taxes?

In Iowa, we expect to receive quality public services at a reasonable cost. However, in too many school districts, cities, and counties, there is a gap between the amount of property taxes extracted from citizens and the growth of the community. What is going on? Why is this happening? It happens for different reasons in each locality across the state, but the heart of the problem is a failure to talk with local elected officials.
