DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL
Property taxes. Changes from August 10 to October 30 the date by which certain actions on a political subdivision's budget, rate, and levy must be taken and by which the county auditor must mail a property tax information statement to each taxpayer. Applies this change beginning in 2009. Provides that the statement, instead of a published notice, triggers the taxpayer's opportunity for appeal of a political subdivision's budget, rate, and levy to the department of local government finance. Provides that the statement does not trigger a taxpayer's right to appeal to the county property tax assessment board of appeals a property assessment for which notice was not given. Removes limitations on the department's authority to increase a political subdivision's budget, rate, and levy. Requires the department to prescribe a post card form to give taxpayers notice of assessment actions.
