HB2538- TNT Requirements for Countywide Special Taxing Districts (Mitchell - 2015)

HB2538 extends the TNT requirements to the operational levies of countywide special taxing
districts, which is specific to library districts, flood control, public health services, and jail
districts. The TNT requirements apply only to the operational levies of the special taxing
districts and are exclusive of the levies for voter-approved bonds.
ATRA believes that public disclosure requirements of TNT is important in that it makes
taxpayers aware of tax increases in a timely manner and allows taxpayers the opportunity to
communicate with their elected officials.
