Harsdorf wants DNR to find out about lake tax
A state senator wants the Department of Natural Resources to find out how many lakeside landowners are taxed on part of the water.
Nobody's supposed to be taxed that way because the public owns all lake beds.
Wayne Anderson of Frederic in Polk County found out he was being taxed on 13 acres of Young Lake.
He eventually got $12,000 knocked off his purchase price - it saved him $60 a year in property taxes and he complained to his legislators.
