NAIOP Minnesota supports public policy that is pro-business and keeps Minnesota’s economy healthy and competitive. NAIOP Minnesota’s priority issues are business property taxes, local government transparency, and fiscal disparities.
Business Property Taxes
Minnesota employers currently face an extra tax burden, on top of local property taxes, that is impacting the state’s ability to keep and attract businesses.
Local Government Transparency
More transparency is needed in identifying where taxes are being spent.
As the value of the area-wide tax base has grown and the demand for public revenue sources has increased, proposals to use the program for both private and public projects have emerged, heightening the concern of NAIOP Minnesota members and their tenants.
