DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL
Funding of property tax assessors. Shifts responsibility for funding: (1) the salary and operations of the county assessor from the county to the department of local government finance (DLGF); and (2) the salary of the township assessor and the assessor's employees from the county to the township. Requires the township to fund its share of a county appraisal services contract for property tax assessments. Requires the DLGF to adjust county and township maximum permissible property tax levies to account for the shifts in responsibility for funding. Eliminates the county property reassessment fund and transfers the balance to the county general fund. Provides that notice of the time and place for receiving bids for assessment contracts must be given on the web site maintained by the department of local government finance.
