SF Mayoral Candidate Unveils Property Tax Relief Plan

SF Mayoral Candidate Unveils Property Tax Relief Plan

A Sioux Falls city councilor who is running for mayor is proposing a tax rebate plan.

Greg Jamison says that whenever the city collects more money through sales tax than is budgeted for, he would like to use half of the money to pay down the cities debt and return the other half to homeowners in the form of a property tax rebate check.

"Average based on like last year's numbers, you could expect a $39 rebate," Jamison said.

Jamison says the 2013 tax collection numbers aren't in yet and adds that he would work with the city council to decide exactly how much to pay down debt and how much to return to taxpayers.

In response, Mayor Mike Huether issued the following statement:

"In Sioux Falls and South Dakota, we consider being conservative and fiscally prudent the proper way to run government. Our citizens are thrilled that our cities piggy bank has grown every year for last three and looks like we achieved that goal once again. Families and businesses do it. So should government!"
