School levy set

The Whitehall School Board has set the tax rate for the 2009-10 school year.

 

The collection of school taxes will begin on Tuesday, Sept. 1, and continue through Nov. 6, with the board dividing $4,244,153 between each of the five towns that it serves. The school spending plan was approved by voters in May.

 

All five towns will see a decrease in their tax rate for the 2009-10 school year, with the towns of Whitehall, Hampton and Fort Ann paying on a 100-percent equalization rate, while Granville will pay based on a 77.51-percent equalization rate and Dresden will pay on a 45.53-percent equalization rate.

Residents of Dresden will be responsible for the largest part of the tax levy, paying for $2,713,201. Due to the poor equalization rate, residents will pay a tax rate of $21.032326 on $129,001,445 total taxable assessed property value. Based on the equalization rate, the town of Dresden should have a total assessed property value of $283,332,846.

 

In the town of Whitehall, where there is $196,081,028 in taxable assessed property value, residents will pay a tax rate of $9.566980 per $1,000 of assessed property value to offset the $1,875,903 in school tax levy.

 

Residents of Hampton will pay a tax rate of $9.556703 to pay for a tax levy of $223,724 on a total taxable assessed property value of $23,410,183.

 

Residents of For Ann who are served by the Whitehall School District will pay a tax rate of $9.575744 to pay for a tax levy of $20,724 on a total taxable assessed property value of $2,166,122.

 

Residents of Granville who are served by the Whitehall School District will pay a tax rate of $12.354682 to pay for a tax levy of $8,379 on a total taxable assessed property value of $678,200.

 

Once the Nov. 6 deadline has passed, delinquent taxes will not be penalized over the first month, but will be subject to a 2-percent interest penalty in the second month and a 3-percent increase in the third month or fraction thereof.
