House Committee Passes New Tax Appeal Process

Yesterday morning the House Tax Policy Committee reported Senate Bill 25, a bill that would amend the General Property Tax Act to provide property owners with a process to request an exemption from the Department of Treasury for any year that a principal residence exemption was erroneously not included on the tax roll , and would allow the Department to deny exemptions for the current and three preceding years that were erroneously included in the tax roll.

The League opposes this legislation, and it now goes to the House for its full consideration.
