Low-income areas pay more in property taxes, Auditor Rob Sand reports

Posted on

“Iowans and private entities in lower-income areas pay more in property taxes than those in wealthier areas, a report issued by Iowa Auditor of State Rob Sand found. In a news conference Tuesday, Sand said the report was the first review of Iowa’s property tax rates across the state in comparison to local income. The review documented the overall levies for every tax district — consolidated rates based on the levies of municipal, county, school district and other taxing entities — and compared those with the median household income in each district based on U.S. Census Bureau data.”
