Real estate tax alert
To the editor:
Brown County has many small plats of land know as timber or wood lots. Years ago these lots supplied the owners with firewood and building material.
Some of the present owners still cut firewod. They may have inherited the wood lot from grandpa and take paying the taxes in stride without paying any attention to the “valuation notices” sent out by the county for next year’s taxes. They will get a shock to find out that their taxes due next year could be three or four times higher than those they just paid.
There will be a meeting on June 17 at 7 p.m. at the Brown County Courthouse in New Ulm. An appointment is required to speak at this meeting.
