Sales & Use Tax Payment To Wrong Local Government

Concerning a clarification of the effect of statutes of limitations on the dispute resolution process when a taxpayer owes sales or use tax to one local government but has erroneously paid the disputed tax to another local government.
Session:
2017 Regular Session
Subject:
Fiscal Policy & Taxes
Bill Summary

The bill seeks to clarify the general assembly's intent when it enacted a dispute resolution process in 1985 to address a situation when a taxpayer paid a sales and use tax to one local government when it should have instead paid that disputed amount to a different local government. A recent court case applied the statute of limitations to this dispute resolution process, resulting in the taxpayer having to pay the disputed amount twice to 2 different local governments. The bill specifies that any statutes of limitations, either local, state, or in intergovernmental transfer agreements, do not apply to the remedies set forth in law.
