Iowa lawmakers recently passed SF 634 which provides new taxpayer protections by requiring local governments to take extra steps before increasing property taxes.
Iowa has the 10th-highest tax burden in the country, according to WalletHub. With property values on the rise, Iowans are vulnerable to tax increases. But the new legislation will help guard against these hikes by providing greater transparency and accountability.
SF 634 places new restrictions on the growth of city and county revenue while ensuring citizens have a better understanding of the connection between local spending and their property tax bill.
