Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This bill prohibits local governments from placing on the property tax bill any other fee or charge, such as solid waste/trash fees and stormwater fees. Instead, billing for such other fees would have to be separate (although they could be included in the same mailing as the property tax bill). Any partial payments by a taxpayer would be required to be first applied to property tax liability, and not pro-rated with other fees or assessments due. Preservation of local control on this issue is an ACCG Priority.
