Minnesota law provides taxing authority to Hospital Districts, to ensure adequate funding to support quality health care services and facilities in rural areas. The tax averages 2 - 3% of property owners’ taxes.
This assessment has not changed since 1999.
Same Tax Levy Since 1999
New Campus Requires NO INCREASE In Taxes
The construction of the new Pine Healthcare Campus will not affect the tax levy.
The new campus will be financed with revenue bonds, which must be paid from the health provider lease payments to the Hospital District. Additionally, this debt is the responsibility of Hospital District, not the member communities.
