The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Rental Housing in Minnesota, 1990. The Effect of Property Taxes on Rental Housing.

Swan, Craig.

Property taxes on rental properties in Minnesota are much higher than on owner-occupied homes. However, the state has a preferential tax classification for low income and subsidized rental housing. The state legislature questioned the value of this preferential treatment. This 1993 analysis of census data and the economics of property taxation by a professor of economics shows the value of the tax, but argues that the whole tax system has become too complicated and should be simplified while equalizing tax rates.
