Board of Equalization to Hold Tax Assessment Hearings

BISMARCK --- Tax Commissioner Rick Clayburgh announced today that electric and gas companies, railroads, airlines, and pipelines will all have a chance to discuss tentative property tax assessments with the State Board of Equalization. The State Board of Equalization will hold the public hearing on August 5 as they review those companies' tentative property tax assessments.

For 2003, the total tentative taxable value of these combined companies' operating properties in North Dakota is $93,823,000, up 5.2 percent from $89,189,150 in 2002.

"These tax dollars benefit local government," said Clayburgh. "Schools, cities, park districts, counties, and townships receive a percentage of the revenue from these taxes."

By type of company, the tentative taxable values for 2003 as compared to 2002 assessments are as follows:

2002 Taxable Valuation 2003 Taxable Valuation % Change
Electric & Gas $17.57 million $19.51 million +11.03%
Railroads 17.60 million 18.68 million + 6.17%
Air Transportation Companies 0.44 million 0.46 million + 2.95%
Pipelines 50.55 million 52.28 million + 3.64%
Carbon Dioxide Pipeline 3.14 million 2.89 million - 7.70%

The Board will meet at 4:00 p.m., on Tuesday August 5, at the State Capitol in the 8th floor Conference Room of the Office of State Tax Commissioner.

Clayburgh said, "Included in the agenda is a hearing on the valuation of the electric and gas companies, railroads, airlines, and pipelines as well as the telecommunications gross receipts tax." Clayburgh added, "The August 5 meeting will not address local assessments for residential, commercial, and agricultural properties. Those discussions will take place during another meeting at a later date."

The State Board of Equalization will conduct a final review and hold a public hearing on those local assessments on August 12. The Board consists of the Governor (chairman), Tax Commissioner (secretary), Agriculture Commissioner, State Auditor, and State Treasurer.
