Equalization Board (1860-1907)
Also known as:
State Board of Equalization
The State Board of Equalization was created in 1860 (Laws 1860 c1 s39) to equalize the value of real property among the counties of the state. In 1907 the board was replaced by the Minnesota Tax Commission (Laws 1907 c408).
The board was originally made up of the governor, secretary of state, auditor, treasurer, and attorney general. The composition of the board was changed in 1878 (Laws 1878 c11 s46). The secretary of state and treasurer were taken off the board and a person elected for a two-year term from each judicial district was added.
