Effectiveness of the Minnesota Tree Growth Tax Law
Abstract:Changes in per acre taxes levied against forest lands resulting from use of the recently adopted Tree Growth Tax Law were studied in four northern Minnesota counties. A description of the law sufficient to provide an understanding of its method of application and its differences from the ad valorem system is given. This study indicates that lands entered under this law have received a significant reduction in tax per acre on the average. Features of this law are examined to indicate their economic consequences for the local taxing units and for owners with land under the law.
