House of Representatives
Session of 2013 - 2014 Regular Session


Posted: February 22, 2013 11:39 AM
From: Representative Peter J. Daley
To: All House members
Subject: Local Tax Collection Law, Act 394 of 1945
In the near future, I plan to reintroduce legislation (former HB 2252) amending the Tax Collection Law to further provide for collection by legal representatives of deceased tax collectors.

A tax collector in my legislative district died shortly after the last day for payment of taxes to his office. The Executrix of the estate, who is also the daughter of the deceased, would like to close the books, but is not empowered in law to make settlement, only to collect taxes.

I would like to correct this circumstance by expanding the authority of an executor to include disbursement of funds. An executor should have full access to the office of tax collector, including but not limited to all tax records, receipts, bank records and other records of the office, for the purpose of making settlement. They should be empowered to draw the appropriate checks on the tax collector's account in order to transfer the revenue collected to the appropriate authority.

Please join me in cosponsoring this legislation that would provide for this correction.
