A look at what’s driving the spike in tax bills
In 2002, the city valued Corinne Becker’s duplex in Northeast Minneapolis at $234,000. She paid $1,926 in property taxes.
In 2010, the city said her home was worth $266,000, though she had it appraised twice in June and both appraisers said it was worth $182,000. Her tax bill for 2011 more than doubled from 2002 to $4,320.
