Attempts to wean school corps off circuit breaker credits The bill extends (through 2023) the ability in current law for a school corporation to allocate tax cap credits proportionately (without taking protected taxes into account) under certain circumstances. It provides that a school corporation is eligible to allocate credits proportionately if the school corporation's percentage amount of credits granted against the school corporation's operations fund levy is at least a certain percentage. Debt service levies for some school corporations could increase in CY 2021 through CY 2024, to replenish operating balances if it becomes necessary to use those balances to make debt payments in CY 2020 through CY 2023. If debt service levies rise, then all taxing units that intersect the school corporation could be subject to higher tax cap losses.
The increase in debt levies under this provision depends on actions taken by qualifying school corporations. What may come up in 2020 Not a budget year, short session Accountability measures, including post secondary ILEARN Expanding counselor responsibilities for career counseling
