Proposal would Shift Tax Assessment to Counties

The Department of Revenue (DOR) recently released a draft of legislation that would consolidate the property tax assessment process by shifting the responsibility from the state’s municipalities to the counties. DOR considers the proposal a work in progress and will be holding upcoming hearings throughout the state for public input. A schedule of these hearings is forthcoming.
