By February 24, 2013 No Comments

A coalition of organizations including MREA, SEE and SEIU are pushing the legislature to take on school property tax reform. A number of school property tax issues are emerging and will be reviewed this coming week.

The issues include putting Seasonal & Recreational property taxes back into school operating referenda (SF 386), increasing operating referenda and debt service equalization. Education Advancement Revenue (SF 576) is a new twist on the general education/levy roll-in concept.
