Regarding this email from Steve Coleman
“I just wanted to follow up on this last email, as you may be entitled to additional funding for motor vehicle from the state (bolded below from last email). To date, we have had only one municipality reach out and qualify for this funding. If you are unsure and need further clarification, please do not hesitate to reach out to you assigned analyst to discuss (If you are unsure of who your analyst is please refer to this map). Again, there is only a small portion of the municipal population that may qualify for this funding.”
Who else went over the baseline but did not qualify because They did not meet the following criteria?
1) Your municipality (fire district) adopted a budget that includes a current year motor vehicle levy collection amount that is greater than the FY 2018 Baseline Levy amount for your municipality.
a. Based on completed FY23 budget disclosures with municipalities there were only a handful of municipalities that may have these funds available to them.Ken MalletteParticipant08/24/2022 at 10:01 AMPost count: 3
Yes it is very restrictive on all who waited for GA action. If it was not included and billed then you only get the 2018 baseline.Chris CelesteKeymaster08/24/2022 at 10:38 AMPost count: 32
So, unfortunately, as Ken stated, it is very restrictive. If you did not budget the full levy amount, then you will not be reimbursed any more than your FY18 baseline.
Here is the relevant language from the state budget:
(2) For fiscal year 2023, each city, town, and fire district shall receive a reimbursement
equal to the amount it received in fiscal year 2017 plus its FY 2018 baseline amount (“FY 2023
reimbursement amount”). A city, town, or fire district is entitled to receive additional
reimbursement in fiscal year 2023 as follows:
(i) If the department of revenue certifies that a city, town, or fire district’s budgeted motor
vehicle levy for the assessment date of December 31, 2021 is in excess of its FY 2023
reimbursement amount, the city, town, or fire district shall be reimbursed the difference between
such motor vehicle levy and its FY2023 reimbursement amount.
