    "An Act relating to municipal property taxation in annexed and detached areas; and providing for an effective date."

"...If adopted, the bill provides that a tax may not be assessed or levied before January 1 of the year immediately following the annexation..."
- Sen. Wagoner

 

Senate Bill 63 proposes new statutory language to clarify when a municipality may tax an area that was annexed. It also clarifies the question of property taxes in a detached area.

Currently, there is uncertainly with regard to the authority of municipal governments to levy property taxes in newly annexed territory. The Local Boundary Commission has recommended clarification of this for several years.

The issue was raised as an item of concern during the legislative hearings on the City of Homer's Annexation, discussed in 2002 during the 22nd Legislative Session. The annexation was effective in March, but the question of when a tax levy would be applied was uncertain.

If adopted, the bill provides that a tax may not be assessed or levied before January 1 of the year immediately following the annexation. An exception would be if the annexation were effective on January 1.

For detached areas, the bill clarifies that taxes levied on property prior to the date of the detachment remain valid.
