Problematic Local Option Tax Exemption for School Properties on Senate Floor

Posted on November 20, 2013 by sharkins

Contact your Senator to voice concerns regarding 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 within 60 days of the effective date of the legislation.  As a result if a local unit does not specifically pass that resolution, any school property sold in your community would automatically be off the tax rolls.

Contact your Senator to let them know how this legislation would negatively impact your community!
