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.

     7-21-33.   Uncollected taxes not considered asset in computing debt limitation. Whenever it shall be necessary to compute the indebtedness of a county or of any of its institutions or agencies, for bonding or other indebtedness purposes, delinquent taxes and taxes levied for the purposes set forth in the budget of the county shall not be considered an asset, but shall be deemed for such purposes to have been already pledged and expended for the purposes, objects, and items set forth in the budget; provided however, that all taxes levied for the payment and redemption of bonds, warrants, or other public debts, shall be deemed a competent and sufficient asset to be considered in the calculation of any constitutional or statutory limitation.
