Manning Memo: Protections for property and children

Posted by: Allison Vanatsky  | Friday, March 22, 2019

We are just a few weeks away from critical deadlines for bills to receive a hearing, so legislation is moving quickly at the Statehouse. My first bill, House Bill 1056, passed through the Senate unanimously. Currently, county auditors determine someone’s eligibility for real property tax deductions. If a taxpayer is denied, they can appeal the decision, and the notice of appeal is filed with the county or township assessor. This bill streamlines the appeal process of auditor decisions by bypassing the assessor, who is unfamiliar with the case, from the system and sending it straight to the auditor. Due to an amendment in the Senate, the legislation must return to the House to either approve or reject the changes and send the bill to a conference committee to reconcile differences.
