SB 285 passed the Senate 43 to 0. Essentially, it allows a county to adopt an ordinance that creates an e-mail option for property tax notice. Once that has been done, then taxpayers in the county can opt to receive notices via e-mail.
I am all for doing as much as possible online and limiting snail mail to the extent possible. But, I’ve also had enough e-mail disappear into the ether that I’d be a little concerned about doing property tax notices that way. On the other hand, every property owner knows they have to pay property taxes. If they don’t get their notices, it isn’t too difficult to get your tax liability information at some point before their property goes up for tax sale.
