County taxes hard on business

 

To the Editor:

Dear Morrison County Commissioners, in 2017, I will pay $620 in property taxes to Morrison County on my commercial property in Little Falls which has an estimated market value of $69,400.

In 2017, I will pay $472 in property taxes to Crow Wing County on my commercial property in Brainerd which has an estimated market value of $99,700,

I will pay Morrison County almost 200 percent more when you factor in market value numbers.

Maybe we should hire Crow Wing County commissioners to run Morrison County.
