New law will help Wyoming counties collect unpaid taxes

GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) — A new law will help Wyoming counties that need to collect unpaid taxes.

Gov. Matt Mead signed the bill into law Wednesday.

The Gillette News Record <a target=”&mdash;blank” href=”http://www.gillettenewsrecord.com/news/local/article%E2%80%947f3e329a-54c9-56e5-9e29-00e3c14c0d66.html”>reports</a> the law will allow counties to deduct “extraordinary costs to collect taxes” before the tax is distributed.

Campbell County Commissioner Rusty Bell says the law gives counties room to spend extra time and money on getting those unpaid taxes since they won’t be overwhelmed with the bill.

He says the law benefits the entire state because after the unpaid taxes are collected, most of the money collected is distributed to the state’s school districts.
