Subject: “County Property Tax Reduction & Diversification Act”
This legislation would give municipalities the option of assessing a menu of taxes, to provide property tax relief.

In particular, it would authorize a county to levy, assess and collect certain taxes, such as sales, use, earned income, business privilege or mercantile, occupancy, computation, retail sales, vehicle sales, utility services and mobile telecommunications.

Additionally, it would require counties to obtain a free license with the Department of Revenue, and report back to each municipality, with a monthly statement of the sum retained and reimbursed. As well as provide annual reports to both the House and Senate Appropriations Committee.

School districts would also obtain the option of assessing similar taxes on wholesale and retail goods, wares and merchandise, municipal service among others.
