Will broken promises increase your property taxes?

See how much your city, county and school district will lose if Legislative Republicans fail to reimburse them as promised for property tax cuts.

The table below is based on information from the Iowa Department of Management. Next to each city is the amount that city would lose if the State of Iowa fails to fund the property tax backfill.

Senate Democrats encourage you to tell Governor Reynolds and Iowa’s Republican legislators to keep their promises. If they don’t, property tax increases and cuts in local services are sure to follow.

This is an alphabetical list of counties, school districts and cities. Use the search box at the top of the table to filter your results.
