Representative Williams, sponsor, introduced Senate Bill 16-067. The reengrossed bill allows counties with a population of under 60,000 to grant a property tax exemption for personal property used to provide broadband service if the county has an agreement with a broadband service provider to provide service with the county. Municipalities and school districts within the county have 90 days to opt out of offering the exemption. The bill specifies that if school districts do not opt out, the state will not backfill the property tax reduction through the school finance formula. The exemption applies to personal property purchased on or after January 1, 2017, and is available for property tax years 2018 through 2025. Representative Williams answered several committee questions.
