Staff Analysis of the Legislation

In counties with less than 50,000 tax parcels, current law allows the tax commissioner to directly contract with a city to collect city taxes and to receive compensation from the city for those services. This bill would eliminate such direct contracts between tax commissioners and cities, with the result that counties and cities could contract for the tax commissioner to collect city taxes. Such contracts would include compensation from the city to the county to cover the cost of collections. Counties would be authorized to provide additional compensation to the tax commissioner for collection of city taxes. Tax commissioners would be prohibited from receiving compensation directly from the city.
