House Bill 85: Better Hope You Paid Your School Taxes Or You May Not Get Your Full Tax Refund!

Delaware State Rep. Daniel Short introduced House Bill 85 yesterday.  This legislation would call for what’s known as a tax intercept if you did not pay your local school and property taxes.  This method of collection would have the funds come out of your tax refund check.  Currently, over $32 million is owed in tax arrears from citizens in Delaware over the last five years.

The legislation actually gives how much is owed to each school district in the state.

I am a proud parent of a son with Tourette's Syndrome and several other co-morbidities. I write on this blog to educate other parents so they know a bit more about not only special education, but all the really bad things that are happening with public schools in Delaware and the USA. We are all in this together, and if our children aren't able to advocate for themselves it's up to us parents! We need to stop letting companies run our schools, and demand our children get a proper education. Our Departments of Education in our states have become weak with fear from the bullying US DOE, and we need to take back our schools!

  1. Actually, there’s a bunch of higher ed folks who had this direct re-payment going there for awhile. Property taxes usually had to go to a lien, so this is great if it goes thru. I’m sure it will go thru, but in Delaware there are about 15 agencies/encumberances that are permitted under this intercept. My bigger question is who gets what first? Child support, higher ed, school, unemployment payments, districts, fines etc. are all in line too for intercept–so no district should probably be counting on too much in return. But it is the right thing to do.
