Teton County Takes Lead In Property Tax Reform

September 12, 2013 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Teton County No Comments
Gingery

Teton County’s State Representative Keith Gingery says he is presenting the Wyoming Legislature’s Revenue Committee on some ideas that he has helped to formulate with the Teton County Board of Commissioners, Teton County Clerk, and Teton County Assessor pertaining to property taxes.  The Revenue Committee will be spending a full day today hearing testimony on the two issues. One of those issues, Gingery says pertains to the process for landowners to appeal their property taxes to the County Board of Commissioners who also serve as the county’s Board of Equalization. That bill he says seeks to clean up the archaic process for appealing property tax which has led to a certain amount of confusion and hard feelings on the parts of appellants. The other issue, Gingery says pertains to non-profit exempt status for property tax.  He says it used to be that non-profits did not have property tax exemptions, but there is a loop-hole in the law. He says while he has no opinion about the law whether they should or shouldn’t have that loop-hole, they are trying to urge the revenue committee to take a position one way or another whether that loop-hole should remain in place or providing options for certain non-profits who meet specific requirements to have exemptions if they use the property in the operation of their non-profit but not for investment purposes. Gingery says Teton County Clerk Sherry Daigle and Teton County Assessor Dawn Johnson is also attending the meeting in Buffalo to testify on behalf of Teton County.

    In my opinion, everybody should go hunting each weekend of the hunting season. You don’t have to go after elk or deer every time. Change it up a little. Hunt doves on the first weekend, then try to get a blue grouse or two the next. Later in the fall, you can start working duck […]
