Senator Woods, prime sponsor, discussed the provisions of Senate Bill 16-172 concerning electronic notices in county property tax disputes. She also distributed Amendment L.001 (Attachment A). Under current law, a county board of equalization must mail notices of hearings and decisions to the petitioner's who dispute property tax valuations made by the county assessor. This bill allows a board of county commissioners to pass ordinances allowing for notices of hearings for the abatement and refund of taxes, notices of hearings for petitions for appeal, and decisions related to these hearings to be emailed or faxed to the petitioner or the petitioner's agent.
