Sheridan County Commission Approves Resolution Notice of Intent to Amend Property Tax Deferral Program

At Tuesday's Sheridan County Commission meeting, commissioners considered and approved a notice of intent to amend the Sheridan County Property Tax Deferral Program. Commissioner Steve Maier explains.

Maier says that over the years, the Wyoming State Legislature has changed the statutory language, and did so again last year to loosen up the criteria for people who want to apply for the program.

He tells us that Sheridan County and Teton County are the only counties in the state that have this deferral program on the books. He adds that it's not well used because people most often prefer to deal in other ways with their taxes than defer payment for a period of time.

Maier says that because yesterday's action was done by resolution of the County, they have to go through the Wyoming Public Procedures Act and go through a 45-day comment period and public hearings to change the resolution.
