Property Tax Information Site
ISD No. 413, Marshall

This site provides information for taxpayers of Independent School District 413 – Marshall Public Schools regarding how the district's proposed referendum would 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, contact Ehlers at the numbers listed below.

About the Referendum

The district will be holding a special election on Tuesday, May 14, 2019 seeking voter approval of one ballot question. Approval of the ballot question would authorize the district to issue general obligation school building bonds in an amount not to exceed $29,800,000 to provide funds for the construction of a new elementary school and the decommissioning of the existing West Side Elementary School; the construction of additions, alterations, improvements and upgrades to the Park Side Elementary School to convert that facility to an early childhood education facility; and the construction of secure entries and security and safety improvements at various school facilities districtwide.

For additional information on how the funds would be used, click on the "Investing In A Strong Future" link below.

Impact on Property Taxes

Approval of the ballot questions would cause a property tax increase beginning with taxes payable in 2020, and the debt service tax levies would be in place for 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), which will be mailed to you by Lyon County during the month of March. If you have not received your 2019 Valuation Notice for taxes payable in 2020, you will use the EMV from the 2018 Valuation Notice for taxes payable in 2019 mailed by Lyon County in March 2018 (see example below). If you don't have a valuation notice available, contact Lyon County and ask for the most recent total Estimated Market Value for your property or use the instructions below to find the value online.
