Bismarck, ND (WDAY TV) - Millions of dollars in property tax relief has been passed on to North Dakota homeowners, but still many wonder why they haven't seen the savings.

Governor Jack Dalrymple has created a task force to study permanent property tax reform in North Dakota.

He announced the fourteen member group at the state Capitol.

The governor says since 2009 North Dakota has had about $1.5 billion in reductions in local property taxes and now is the time for "lasting property tax reform."

Their first meeting is Friday.

Gov. Jack Dalrymple/R) North Dakota: "As we look at how things are funded locally. One of the fundamental questions is, is there a better way to fund a particular service rather than accessing local property."

The governor's new task force is slated to hold its first meeting on Friday.
