|Subject:||Municipal Property Tax Payment and Penalty Relief|
|In the near future, I will reintroduce legislation to provide municipal property tax relief for taxpayers through the end of 2021.
This legislation is a continuation of my efforts last session to allow counties and municipal governments the option to provide needed relief to property taxpayers due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
With the unanimous support of the legislature, Act 15 of 2020 included language which provided the option to extend the property tax discount period and/or waive penalties for late payments through the end of 2020 for local governments. This bill would extend this option for another year.
I hope you will join me in co-sponsoring this legislation.
