Property tax-assessed value.






This bill contains an appropriation of $23,940,000 from the GENERAL FUND to the State Treasurer.  This appropriation is effective immediately.


FY 2010

FY 2011

FY 2012





Anticipated Revenue (Decrease):













Source of revenue decrease: Property tax exemption on the assessed value of all other property which exceeds the average assessed value for the current year and the 2 calendar years immediately preceding




The above estimate is based on the assessment of all other property (assessed at 9.5%) for the tax years 2007 and 2008. The assessed value of all other property is forecasted to increase by 5% each year, according to January 2009 CREG projections.


It is estimated that exempting the assessed value of all other property that exceeds the 3 year average (current year and 2 calendar years immediately preceding) would decrease the assessed valuation by $437,700,000 in tax year 2009, by $283,960,000 in tax year 2010, and by $298,160,000 in tax year 2011.


In 2008, the average mill levy applied to industrial and all other property was 66.696 mills. Mill levies are assumed to remain constant.


The projected revenue decrease in the 12 mill property tax paid to the School Foundation Program is estimated at $5,250,000 for tax year 2009, $3,410,000 for tax year 2010, and $3,580,000 in tax year 2011. The projected revenue decrease in all other property taxes paid to local governments is estimated at $23,940,000 for tax year 2009, $15,530,000 for tax year 2010 and $16,310,000 for tax year 2011. Local governments will receive reimbursement for the decrease in property taxes levied in tax year 2009 (FY 2010) by the $23.94 million appropriation in the bill, except for the 12 mills levied for payment to the School Foundation Program. The decrease in property taxes to local governments in FY 2011 and FY 2012 will also decrease the 31 mills K-12 local resource, which will also result in a combination of increased expenditures and decreased revenues to the School Foundation Program of approximately $8.8 million in FY 2011 and $9.2 million in FY 2012.
