Tax Relief Bills in the Minnesota Legislature


  • There are two Bills - HF253 and HF254 - being reviewed in the Minnesota Legislature related to tax relief for non-profit organizations.
  • HF253:
  • HF254:
  • We do know some of our local representatives - Carrie Ruud, Josh Heintzeman and Dale Lueck - are supportive of these Bills.
  • Governor Tim Walz is who we need to convince.  
  • This change could mean huge dividends for our association (see Word attachment for data).
  • We are seeking your help in asking Governor Walz for his support.
  • Below is a Word document attachment that includes a form letter you can use for the communication.  You can change or edit this to fit your personal message.  We wanted to provide you with a starting point.
  • You can follow this link to send your letter to Governor Walz.
  • If you are involved in other non-profit organizations, please pass this along.  We need lots of voices!
  • Thank you for your help and support with this endeavor.
