There are one-time levy limits applied to taxes levied in 2013, payable 2014, only. They will be in effect for all counties with a population of 5,000 and over and cities with a population of 2,500 and over. Exempt from the limits are all cities with a population less than 2,500, all towns and all special taxing districts.
A jurisdiction’s final certified levy cannot exceed its preliminary September levy regardless of the amount of approved special levies. In the Certified Special Levies document Column A is the 2014 Property Tax Levy Limit that was certified on September 1 and Column B contains the 2014 Qualified Special Levies certified on December 10.
Note: Any qualifying special levies under M.S. 275.70, subd. 5, clauses 1-5, 7, 9, or 16 can be levied outside of the levy limit (column J in the 2014 Levy Limits for Counties and Cities file posted above). Any county or city that levies a qualifying special levy must complete the 2014 Special Levy Form by September 30.
Minnesota Laws 2013, Chapter 143, Article 4, Section 48 (as amended by Chapter 144, Section 18) enacts levy limits.
