Members of the military who deploy out-of-state would have their property taxes waived temporarily under a proposal in the Legislature.

The Senate Revenue and Taxation Committee on Wednesday unanimously approved both SJR8 and SB116 and sent them to the full Senate. SJR8 is a constitutional amendment — which must pass by two-thirds majorities in both houses and be approved by voters — to allow the change, and SB116 is a statute needed to implement it.

“This will certainly make a big difference” to the families of military members who are deployed away from home, said Sen. Luz Robles, D-Salt Lake City, who is sponsoring the legislation. “We felt this would be a great opportunity to say thanks to them.”
