Dakota City, IA – The Humboldt County Board of Supervisors agreed to push back the “max tax” levy hearing for the upcoming fiscal year to Monday, April 3 at 9:00 a.m. at the Humboldt County Courthouse in Dakota City.

The “max tax” levy was initiated by the Iowa Legislature several years ago, requiring boards that collect property taxes to hold an additional property tax hearing each year before the next fiscal year’s budget is certified, setting a limit on the amount of property taxes that can be collected in the next fiscal year for the largest parts of the budget.
