The House has again rejected giving renters an income tax credit in lieu of property tax relief.
Supporters called it a “tax fairness” bill. They say the state has done a lot to cut local property taxes…but renters aren’t sharing in those benefits.
Supporters say it’s false when opponents claim renters aren’t paying any property tax.
"When I get my statement from my landlord every year, when it says my rent is going up by $30, $50, $100, whatever it is -- one of the reasons listed is for an increase in property taxes," said Rep. Kylie Overson (D-Grand Forks).
