GASB 77 TAX ABATEMENT INFORMATION

 

PLEASE NOTE - REDUCED NOVEMBER 2017 FINAL TAX TURNOVER: 

  • In 2017, laws concerning Deferred Billing Credit changed.  A new process called "Potential Refund Credit" has replaced the Deferred Billing Credit. After October 6, 2017, any substantially large value appeals that would have qualified for Deferred Billing will be set up and reported on under the new Potential Refund Credit (PRC) process.  Any cases of Deferred Billing that were set up before October 6, 2017, will continue to be reported under the old method until their resolution.  Under the PRC process, no taxes will be deferred. The taxpayer pays the full amount of taxes at normal due dates. When there is a large appeal, under PRC, the assessor may establish an amount to hold back, therefore reducing the amount turned to the taxing districts. The assessor notifies the treasurer of this PRC amount, and the treasurer places that amount in an interest-bearing escrow account until final resolution of the appeal.
