PILT Issues Discussed By Commissioners

 

 

During Thursday’s meeting, Cameron County Commissioners discussed several issues that are being debated in the state legislature that could increase revenue into the region if they are passed.

Commissioner Phil Jones is on the steering committee for the State Land Tax Fairness Coalition, organized to leverage the state to increase the Payments-in-Lieu-of-Taxes (PILT) on forestry, game and park land.

Rural counties are disproportionately affected by the loss of revenue from state-held lands.
