Minnesota commercial real estate taxes are based upon market value of taxable property as set by the local assessor. To calculate the tax for the current year, first compute the tax capacity by multiplying all property value up to $150,000 times .015, plus any value over $150,000 times .02. Example: net tax capacity on a $200,000 business property: ($150,000 X .015) + ($50,000 X .02) = $2,250 + $1,000 = $3,250. Tax capacity times the tax rate equals taxes owed. Commercial and industrial property must also pay a state property tax, which is equal to the tax capacity times the State Tax Rate.

In some localities where voters have approved referendums, an additional referendum tax must be added, calculated by multiplying the referendum tax rate times the total market value of the commercial property.

Please note: Specific property tax classifications and computations can be more complex and result in different tax amounts. This simplified explanation applies in the most general situations and will allow a business to roughly estimate its potential property tax burden. The county assessor or auditor may be able to answer questions about specific properties and uses.

Economic Development Services
The City operates a Downtown Code Improvement Program. The City will give qualifying businesses funds to make code improvements to their buildings. At the same time, the business or building owner must invest the company’s own funds to make upgrades to the exterior so that the building complies with the design guidelines for downtown.

To be eligible, buildings must be in the Downtown TIF district and must be designated for reinvestment in the downtown revitalization framework. Tenants cannot be permanently displaced by the work.

The Dakota County Community Development Agency will help applicants apply for the money, which comes from federal sources. Contact Rosemount Community Development at (651) 322-2051 for details.
