Bill Caption

Relating to the sale of property for delinquent ad valorem taxes.

Fiscal Notes

No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

HB 3062 amends Code relating to the sale of property for delinquent property taxes. Current law states that real property seized under a tax warrant pursuant to a foreclosure of a tax lien must be sold by the officer authorized to sell the property, unless otherwise directed by the taxing unit.

The bill would add personal property which would include manufactured housing, as property that would be subject to the current bidding process and procedures. The bill would also, maintain administrative requirements for verifying property for sale by local governments and would expand an officers ability to deliver deeds to successful bidders and those approved by the bidder.

Vote Recommendation Notes

The authority to simplify current regulatory procedures related to the sale of personal property in the case of delinquent property taxes is within the legitimate responsibility of the state government. The provisions of this bill do not appear to have a connection to our liberty principles. Therefore, we remain neutral on HB 3062.
