Property Tax Information Site
Edgerton Public Schools ISD No. 581

This site provides information for taxpayers of Edgerton Public Schools regarding how the district’s proposed referendum will affect their property taxes. The site was prepared by the school district's municipal advisors, Ehlers, in cooperation with the school district. If you have questions about the information on this site, you may call Ehlers at the numbers listed below.

About the Referendum

The district will be holding a special election on November 6, 2018, seeking voter approval for the renewal of the existing referendum revenue authority of $641.68 per pupil which is expiring after taxes payable in 2019. The renewed authority would increase each year by the rate of inflation and be applicable for ten years, beginning with taxes payable in 2020.

For additional information on how the funds would be used, click on the "Return to School District Website" button above.

Impact on Property Taxes

To determine the estimated impact of the proposed ballot question on your 2020 taxes, either view the tax impact for sample property types and values here or follow the instructions below.

  • If your property is classified as Agricultural (either Homestead or Non-Homestead), the taxes for the referendum will be based only on the Estimated Market Value (EMV) of the house, garage, and one acre of land (also known as the HGA value). Contact your home county (see information listed below) to obtain this value. You will pay no taxes for the referendum based on the value of other agricultural land and buildings.
  • If your property is classified as Seasonal Recreational Residential, you will pay no taxes for the proposed referendum.

For Residential and Commercial/Industrial properties, the 2018 Payable 2019 EMV is listed on the "Valuation Notice" mailed by your county in March 2018 (see example below). If you don't have that document available, find the information online using the instructions below or contact your county and ask for the 2018 EMV for taxes payable in 2019. Because the district is exercising the ability to renew the authority one year early, the first year of tax impact will be in Payable 2020. If you believe your value will increase between Payable 2019 and Payable 2020, you should take that into account in the calculator.
