Maximum Property Tax Dollars

New House File 718 created a new requirement for Cities and Counties. One was to notify citizens of the proposed property tax levy that were being considered by all entities. Counties will be sending out a new statement to each property owner showing what the levies would look like with a $100,000 property. After the mailing the City is required to hold a public hearing on the proposed property tax levy.

Senate File 634 requires Cities to pass a resolution establishing their maximum property tax dollars to certify for levy, post notification, and hold a public hearing and vote. The legislation specified certain levies (not all) to be listed in property tax dollars compared to the previous year.
