Preliminary Levy
Lowering the levy

​At its meeting Tuesday, the Dakota County Board of Commissioners voted to set its 2014 preliminary property tax levy at $128,506,313, which represents a decrease of 0.5 percent from last year’s approved levy of $129,152,073.

The impact of the preliminary levy on a median value home in Dakota County is about a $9 reduction in the County’s share of property tax.

The Board cannot increase but can decrease the preliminary amount any time before Dec. 28, the deadline to certify the final levy.
