Bill eliminating board of tax review moves forward

April 30, 2015

House File 626 provides for future elimination of the state board of tax review. During the last several years, the board is used less by taxpayers as they opt to appeal directly to district court. The state board of tax review hears non-property tax issues. As part of the proposal, the House included language that would eliminate the sunset date for the much used Property Assessment Appeals Board. In a move by the Senate Ways and Means Committee on Tuesday, the sunset was extended three years, but the complete repeal was not eliminated. The bill is now ready for debate in the Senate. If amended it will have to go back to the House for their consideration.
