09:05 AM -- Special District Association



Geoff Wilson, Special Counsel with Murray Dahl Kuechenmeister & Renauld, explained that most special districts do not have the authority to levy a sales tax and instead rely on property tax revenue to operate. The Regional Transportation District (RTD) and Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD) have both used the same sales tax base as the state base since the passage of House Bill 13-1272 during the 2013 legislative session. Other special districts that levy a sales tax generally operate in a matter similar to a statutory county or municipality.
