Bill Caption

Relating to the exemption from taxes and special assessments of property of a navigation district.

Fiscal Notes

To the extent that navigation district property is not currently exempt, there would be a cost to local taxing units and to the State through the school funding formula.

Bill Analysis

HB 2591 amends the Water Code relating to taxes and other special assessments of property of navigation districts. The bill would exempt the district and the district’s property from all taxes imposed by the state or all political subdivision of the state.

Vote Recommendation Notes

Exempting district property from state taxes and special assessments is reasonable since the concept of government entities imposing taxes on government subdivisions would not benefit local residents of the district. Due to this, we remain neutral on HB 2591.
