SPONSORS: Rep. Sapareto, Rock 6; Rep. Weyler, Rock 13
COMMITTEE: Ways and Means
ANALYSIS: This bill transfers the authority to collect the education property tax from the municipalities to the department of revenue administration. The bill establishes a program for the rebate of excess education property tax payments made by eligible taxpayers in the state. Claims for rebates shall be made to the department of revenue administration and qualifying claims shall be paid from the interest which accumulates on education property taxes collected by the department.
DNHPE Analysis: A confused and unnecessary bill
