HAA (Heartland Apt. Assoc.) v. City of Mission – Property Rights
Kansas Court of Appeals

This case seeks to strike down the City of Mission’s Transportation Utility Fee (TUF) ordinances.  The TUF is imposed on the owners of all developed property within the City, and a different rate is charged depending on whether the development is categorized as “single family residential,” “multi-family residential” or “non-residential use.” NFIB’s brief raised concerns with the TUF. These sorts of monetary exactions—whether viewed as taxes or fees—impose burdens on small business and raise constitutional issues in so far as they exact monetary property from the citizens.
