Section: Use of State aid to reduce tax levy

Statute: 52:27D-118.40

State aid provided pursuant to sections 3 and 4 of this act shall be used solely and exclusively by each municipality for the purposes of reducing the amount the municipality is required to raise by local property tax levy for municipal purposes. In the event that the amount of State aid provided pursuant to sections 3 and 4 of this act exceeds the amount required to be raised by local property tax levy for municipal purposes, the balance of the State aid shall be used to reduce the amount the municipality is required to raise by local property tax levy for county purposes, notwithstanding the provisions of any law to the contrary. The director shall certify that each municipality has complied with this section. If the director finds that State aid provided pursuant to this act is not used by a municipality solely and exclusively to reduce the amount required to be raised by local property tax levy, the director shall direct that the municipal governing body make corrections to its budget. L.1991,c.63,s.9.
