Tax relief is on the way to Iowa businesses and residents. That’s after lawmakers came up with a deal on Thursday in Des Moines.
Iowa’s plan will reach out to Le Claire businesses. That’s where shoppers are out on Friday for French Market Days.
“Part of the reason why Le Claire has been so popular lately is because of the small businesses,” said shopper Stacy Clark. “If we can get more of them, keep them going, I think that’s good.”
Property tax rates climbed here in recent years. Aunt Hattie’s Fanciful Emporium is one business that could benefit.
“It’s good to see the little guy get something once in a while,” said owner Donna Walley. “I’m thrilled about it.”
Walley opened the store four years ago in Le Claire and recently expanded. She’s ready to use tax credits and assessment changes to grow her business.
