During the 2017 Legislative session, it was touted as permanent property tax relief.
And the state takeover of payments for county social service programs is coming to fruition.
That is happening as the state is ending its 12-percent property tax buy-down program.
"The counties will receive their first payment on Jan. 10th," said North Dakota Human Services Director Chris Jones.
Counties could levy up to 20 mills to pay for those programs. But because of the takeover, those 20 mills have gone away.
