HB0403/SB0241 – Provisions disallowing a state property tax – Hall/Jackson
This bill deletes various provisions regarding state property tax, as follows:
(1) The provision whereby the comptroller is required to collect the state tax;
(2) The provision whereby any assessed state property tax is a first lien on property; and
(3) The provision whereby the comptroller will issue a distress warrant against the owner of a property for delinquent state property tax, and the provision whereby it is the duty of the sheriff to enforce such a warrant.
Favor: TN has done very well fiscally with no state income or property taxes. This bill, forever forward, leaves all property tax revenues with local governments where they belong and are needed.
