Yesterday the House passed House Bill 4121, a bill that as passed would allow local units of government to exempt property purchased from a school district from real property taxes for five years.
The legislation would automatically exempt these properties unless the local unit of government passes a resolution to place them back on the tax rolls.
The bill now goes to the Senate for consideration.
