    Minnesota real estate taxes are based upon market value of taxable property as set by the local assessor.  To compute commercial/industrial tax, first compute the tax capacity by multiplying all property value up to $150,000 times 1.5%, plus any value over $150,000 times 2.0%. Tax capacity rate plus taxable market value times the market value tax rate equals the taxes owed.

    Minnesota real estate taxes are based upon market value of taxable property as set by the local assessor.  To compute commercial/industrial tax, first compute the tax capacity by multiplying all property value up to $150,000 times 1.5%, plus any value over $150,000 times 2.0%. Tax capacity rate plus taxable market value times the market value tax rate equals the taxes owed.
