Citizens have their chance to talk taxes


ST. PAUL -- Roger Urban thought he was stupid upon discovering he failed to file for a property tax refund.

Then he found out there are 350,000 Minnesotans like him because they also did not know about the refund. So when the chance came up, he suggested that the Legislature take action to make sure taxpayers know they may have money due.

The problem is, Urban said, the state does not adequately tell Minnesotans the refunds are available.
