US House Passes Extension of PILT

The farm bill that has just passed in the US House of Representatives includes a one year extension of the federal program known as Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILT). The program compensates rural counties for federal lands they can’t tax.

Local governments—including Gila County—use the money for services like police and fire protection, and road maintenance.
