Minutes for HB2406 - Committee on Taxation

Short Title

Repealing property tax exemption for certain pipeline property.

Minutes Content for Tue, Apr 4, 2017

Scott Wells, Assistant Revisor provided an overview on HB2406 noting it would repeal 79227 which is the property tax exemption for certain pipeline property.  Section 1 of the bill provides for property that is already exempt due to the statute and would continue the exemption for the remainder of the 10 years. 

Roger Hamm, Deputy Director Property Valuation, Department of Revenue said the bill would have no fiscal impact on the State's 21.5 mills; however, in the future the bill may have a positive impact.  At this time, the Department of Revenue cannot provide an estimate of increased property tax revenue and its effect on local and state revenues.
