The executive director of the North Dakota Association of Counties says you’ll see some differences in your property tax bills this fall.
Mark Johnson said the 12 percent buy down is gone. Johnson says with the slowdown in the oil industry, state lawmakers decided the state could no longer afford that.
"Legislators said that on the floor," Johnson said in an interview. "They said it's probably not sustainable."
Johnson said at the time the 12 percent buydown passed, legislators wanted to, as Johnson put it, "Share the abundance we had for a couple of years."
