During the last session of the Iowa Legislature, commercial property tax was an issue that was not resolved. Republicans favor a proposal that will give 40 percent property tax breaks to large out-of-state corporations, such as Walmart — Iowans’ money that will leave the state.
Dan Zumbach, candidate for the Iowa Senate, stated in a September League of Women Voters forum that he would support this plan.
The problem with the Republican plan: Who will make up the difference? Either homeowners’ property taxes will increase or cities, counties, and schools will lose critical funding or both.
Nate Willems supports commercial property tax relief that targets help for main street businesses.
I hope you will consider voting for Willems for state Senate. He will vote for hometown businesses.
