OAR 150-310-0040
Excessive and Illegal Levies


If any municipal corporation submits a tax levy to the assessor which exceeds constitutional or statutory limitations, the Department of Revenue shall notify the assessor and the excessive portion of the levy shall not be entered on the tax roll.


If the Department of Revenue determines that the levy otherwise fails to meet the requirements provided by law, then upon the notification by the Department of Revenue the assessor shall not enter any tax levy upon the tax roll that does not meet statutory requirements.


Upon discovery that a levy fails to meet the requirements provided by law, the Department of Revenue shall notify, by mail, the municipal corporation and the county assessor of the defects. The assessor shall change the levy in accordance with proper instructions. The municipal corporation shall comply by submitting a revised Form LB-50 reflecting the changes in the levy, plus an amended resolution and budget document to reflect the reduced revenue and appropriated expenditures.
