Nevada County Awaits PILT Money from State

Nevada County Supervisors have waged many battles over the years to get the State of California to pay their taxes. The PILT program as it’s called was set up to offset property taxes the county does not get to collect on state owned property in the county. That includes the Truckee River Wildlife Area and the Spenceville Wildlife Area operated by the State Fish and Wildlife. Supervisor Dan Miller brought the problem to the Nevada County board of Supervisors meeting this week..

What’s been happening is the state has not been paying any of what they owe, and now there’s been a change in State Fish and Wildlife¬†code that changed the wording from “shall” to “may” ¬†pay the funds.

The Board voted unanimously to send a letter to the legislature supporting senate bill 58 authored by Sen. McGuire , that would make it a requirement for the state to pay counties what is owed to them.
