Following the Supreme Court’s Tyler v. Hennepin County decision, state and local governments are working to understand its potential impact on their property tax enforcement systems. Though questions remain, the decision creates an opportunity to reform and improve property tax enforcement systems across the country.

These include reforms aimed at both helping keep people in their homes and ensuring local governments have the tools they need to address vacant and abandoned properties.
