Tax Commissioner Brings Good News to Minot

Posted: Updated:

All across the country Americans are working on their 2013 taxes. In Minot, the Tax Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger made a stop to address concerns and update residents on recent tax programs.

This year Minot residents may feel relieved thanks to more than 25 percent in property tax decreases thanks aid passed during the 2013 Legislative Session. 

Rauschenberger also announced that more than $600,000 were rewarded to North Dakotans through the Sales Tax Rebate Program for flood recovery. And more than 400,000 people filed tax returns during the last tax season, a majority of which were filed online. A win-win for North Dakotans and the Tax Department.

"We've actually been able to decrease our employees from 155 back when Corey started as Commissioner to 134. That's due to increasing, on our end, our IT infrastructure. We are more efficient than we used to be, and I think we're more effective. We're able to respond to tax payers more frequently because we're dealing with less papers. The system does a lot of the (calculating) work for us," says Rauschenberger.

He says longtern the state tax department wants to look at a common property tax bill that would give all 53 counties a consistent look and feel to their property tax documents.
