Approval of the ballot question would cause a property tax increase beginning with taxes payable in 2020, and the debt service tax levy would be in place for up to 20 years. To determine the estimated impact of the proposed ballot questions on your 2020 taxes, follow the instructions below or view sample property types and values here.
Your 2020 taxes will be based on the 2019 Estimated Market Value (EMV) listed on the "Notice of Valuation and Classification" mailed by your county in March 2019. Be advised that valuation has not been assigned yet. Please use the most recently available Notice of Valuation sent in March of 2018 (see example below). If you don't have that document available, contact your county and ask for the 2018 EMV for taxes payable in 2019 or find the information online using the instructions below.
