Assembly Bill 2691 (Holden) – Oppose
As Amended June 21, 2016
AB 2691 seeks to help seniors age 55 and older by establishing a county-level option for property tax payments through an installment plan. While well-intentioned, the measure fails to address critical implementation components and only includes ad valorem taxes, not the full payment due through various additional applicable assessments. It also does not allow any cost recovery by county for administration. CSAC has serious concerns with the potential shortcomings should a program be implemented by a county and would urge caution before adopting such an option.
