Wright County Taxpayer Services has mailed the 2024 Truth in Taxation notices. Taxpayers who have not received their notice by the end of this week can call (763) 682-7585 to obtain another copy. Electronic notices went out late Monday to those who have signed up for that service.
The Truth in Taxation process was designed to allow taxpayers transparency and the opportunity to become involved in the local government budgeting process. The notices provide taxpayers with proposed tax amounts for next year based on the preliminary budgets local governments have adopted and the value and classification sent out by the county assessor earlier this year.
As part of the Truth in Taxation process, counties, cities, and school districts are required to hold a public meeting at which the budget will be discussed and the public given opportunity to comment. Each notice will list the contact information for the applicable local governments as well as the time, date and location of the public hearing. Wright County will be conducting its meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday, December 7 in the County Board Room of the Wright County Government Center (3650 Braddock Ave. NE, Buffalo).
