Lawmakers optimistic about changing Iowa property tax

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

After decades of attempts, lawmakers say they could see the beginning of an overhaul to Iowa's property tax system.

Lawmakers are almost out of time, but are optimistic both parties will reach a compromise and adjourn this week.

The legislature has considered changing Iowa's property tax system for at least 30 years, but the changes bring headaches for politicians.

In Iowa, farmland, businesses and residential property are all taxed in different ways.

If changes are made to just one area, this means the burden would be shifted to other areas.
