HB 0196 OpposeProperty Tax Assessment - Income Approach, Low-Income Housing, and Mental Health Facilities Matt Dollar
7/1/2017 Effective Date Ways & Means Finance -
Larry Ramsey Property Tax Revenue & Finance
In its original form, this bill would have excluded musical royalties for state income-tax purposes. On the last day of the legislative session, that language was removed in favor of language from four unrelated property tax bills: HB 325, HB 285, HB 195, and HB 209. Section 1 of the revised HB 196 incorporates the former HB 325 and HB 285, which (respectively) 1) require tax assessors to consider property-specific income data (if supplied by the owner) and to utilize an income approach valuation if data is available, and 2) limit tax assessors' use of low-income housing tax credits in valuing properties that receive such credits. Section 2 of the revised HB 196 provides that mental health facilities owned by limited liability companies that in turn are owned by tax-exempt corporations are exempt from property taxes in the same manner as such facilities directly owned by tax-exempt corporations. Section 3 of the revised HB 196 allows for retroactive application for property tax exemptions for disabled veterans, where such veterans receive a retroactive determination of disability from the U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs. Such disabled veterans would be permitted to seek tax refunds for up to three years of such retroactive period.
