Truth in Taxation Hearing
The goal of TnT is improving accountability by focusing taxpayers on the relationship between budget decisions and property taxes. It provides taxpayers with a greater opportunity to become involved in the local government budgeting process.
In September 2021, the Chanhassen City Council sets a preliminary tax levy used to generate Truth in Taxation notices that are mailed to all Chanhassen residents. The amount the city council sets is the "not to exceed" amount for taxes payable in 2022 for the City of Chanhassen (other taxing jurisdictions will follow a similar process).
