Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

10-52-15Legislative findings--Certain municipalities not to reduce tax levies.

The Legislature hereby finds that the amendments to chapter 10-52 contained in SL 2002, ch 64, will result in a broader and more uniform tax base for the sales tax levied by municipalities under this chapter, and that, absent a reduction in the current tax levy of a municipality, it is anticipated that total sales tax revenues of a municipality may increase as a result of these amendments. However, so long as a municipality has any bonds or other obligations outstanding which are secured directly or indirectly by the pledge or collection and application of sales taxes levied pursuant to chapter 10-52 as in effect immediately prior to January 1, 2004, no municipality may reduce its tax levy under chapter 10-52 to a rate which, in the exercise of the sound discretion of the governing body, would be expected to produce less total revenue than was collected in the immediately preceding year.
