Joint Property Tax Advisory Committee (JPTAC)
The Joint Property Tax Advisory Committee (JPTAC) was established by state law. The Committee consists of elected or appointed officials from the City of Saint Paul, Ramsey County, and School Independent School District 625. The Committee is not open for public appointments. The Committee will meet from time to time to make appropriate recommendations for the efficient and effective use of property tax dollars raised by each jurisdiction for programs, buildings, and operations. The main purpose of JPTAC is to coordinate setting policies on budgets and taxation that jointly affect the citizens and taxpayers in the City of Saint Paul who are served and taxed by the three units of government.
Duties of the Committee include:
- Identify trends and factors likely to be driving budget outcomes over the next five years with recommendations for how the jurisdictions should manage those trends and factors to increase efficiency and effectiveness
- Agree on the appropriate level of overall property tax levy for the three jurisdictions and publicly report to the governing bodies of each jurisdiction for ratification or modification by resolution
- Identify areas of the budget to be targeted in the coming year for joint review to improve services and achieve efficiencies
The City of Saint Paul, Ramsey County and Saint Paul Public Schools - Independent School District No. 625 partner in chairing the meetings. For the 2022-2023 meetings, Saint Paul Public Schools will be chair, and meetings will convene at 360 Colborne in Conference Room 5A.
Meetings are usually held quarterly and on the fourth Monday in September, January, March, and June from 8:30am-10am. The public is welcome to attend.
