Gov. Terry Branstad and Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds today launched a "Residential Relief Calculator," which allows Iowans to calculate their property tax savings under the Senate Democrats' plan versus the plan put forward by the governor's office and House Republicans.
The Residential Relief Calculator is found here: www.Governor.Iowa.gov/calculator
"Iowans are facing a $2 billion property tax increase over the next eight years, and the majority of that increase will fall on Iowa homeowners," said Gov. Branstad. "Our Residential Relief Calculator demonstrates the significant savings our legislation provides."
Lt. Gov. Reynolds noted that Iowa's economy is improving, making it the wrong time to start raising taxes on Iowans.
"The Residential Relief Calculator gives Iowans the opportunity to see for themselves the savings under our property tax relief plan," said Reynolds. "We have the opportunity to provide permanent property tax relief to Iowans, help put people back to work and make Iowa more competitive."
