Current Bill Summary

SCS/SB 736 - Beginning January 1, 2022, this act allows a taxpayer that owns real property located in a city or county that imposes one or more restrictive orders for a combined total in excess of fifteen days in a calendar year to receive a credit against property taxes owed on such affected property. A restrictive order shall be any city-wide or county-wide ordinance or order imposed pursuant to state law relating to health orders.

The amount of the credit shall be a percentage of the property tax liability that is equal to the percentage of the calendar year that the restrictions on the use of the property were in place, provided that the first fifteen total combined days of all such orders shall not count toward such calculation of the credit. A taxpayer shall pay his or her property taxes in full prior to submitting a statement to the county collector requesting the credit authorized by the act. Within thirty days of the receipt of the payment of property taxes and such statement, the city or county shall issue the credit to the taxpayer.

A taxpayer receiving a tax credit under the act that leases or rents all or a portion of his or her affected real property to one or more other taxpayers shall distribute the tax credit on a pro rata basis to the taxpayers who are current on all lease or rental payments owed to the taxpayer receiving the credit.

The credit authorized by this act shall only apply to real property tax liabilities owed to a city or county imposing a restrictive order, and shall not apply to property tax liabilities owed to any other taxing jurisdiction. (Section 139.305)

This act is substantially similar to SCS/SB 100 (2021) and to a provision contained in CCS/HCS/SB 226 (2021), SBs 12, et. al (2021), and HB 725 (2021).
