RESOLUTION

 

Whereas, the State of Iowa has appropriated moneys for fiscal year July 1, 2005 through June 30, 2006, which moneys are insufficient to fully fund the various local property tax credits/exemptions.

 

And, whereas, Iowa Code Section 25B.7 requires local governments to extend to the taxpayers only those portions of the property tax credits/exemptions that are estimated by the Iowa Department of Revenue and Finance to be funded by the sate appropriation,

 

And, whereas the Iowa Department of Revenue and Finance has estimated the percentages of funding for the affected property tax credits/exemptions as follows:Homestead credit (including Disabled Veteranís Homestead Credit) 78%, Low-income, Elderly, Disabled Credit 100%, Military Exemption 100%,

 

And, whereas the option of fully funding property tax credits/exemptions will cause a funding shortfall to local governments in the County, this fiscal year,

 

And, whereas the option of passing on the reduced state-reimbursed values of the credits will increase the amount of net taxes in the County,

 

And, whereas we find that passing on the reduced state-reimbursed values of the homestead credits to the taxpayers in the County funds local governments to the greatest effect while impacting the largest number of persons with minimal effect and, therefore, in the public interest,

 

Now, therefore, be it resolved pursuant to Iowa Code Section 25B.7 that the property tax credits/exemptions in Webster County for fiscal year July 1, 2005 through June 30, 2006 shall be funded as follows:

 

Homestead Credit††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† 78%
