Gov. Terry Branstad and Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds want to show Iowans that their tax savings plan is better than the one Senate Democrats are proposing.

Monday they launched a way for Iowans to calculate their property tax savings under both plans.

Reynolds says this is the wrong time to start raising taxes on Iowans.

“We homeowners will bear the brunt of a 2 billion dollar property tax increase if nothing is done.  Increasing taxes on homeowners means taking money out of the economy at a time the economy is starting to grow again,” says Reynolds.
