Allowing counties to retain a portion of property taxes collected

SB 5677 would allow county treasurers to retain a portion of the property taxes collected on behalf of cities, local schools, and junior taxing districts to defray the cost of collecting the tax. The portion kept by the county would phase in over several years, starting with .25% in 2016 and 2017, increasing to .5% in 2018 and 2019, and reaching its final rate of 1% in 2020. The bill is not yet scheduled to be heard, but AWC has already expressed concern about the impact this proposal would have on city revenue.
