This site provides information for taxpayers of Wilmot Union High School District, regarding how the district’s proposed referendum may affect property taxes. The site was prepared in cooperation with Ehlers, the district’s independent municipal advisor.

The district will hold a spring election on Tuesday, April 4, 2023 seeking voter approval of one ballot question.
QUESTION 1 would authorize the District to exceed the revenue limit by $5,500,000 for the 2023-2024 school year and by $2,900,000 for the 2024-2025 school year, for non-recurring purposes consisting of operational and maintenance expenses, including for salary, benefits and security improvements.
For more information on how these funds would be used, view the District’s website.
Approval of QUESTION 1 would result in a tax change beginning with taxes payable in 2024, and the tax levies would remain in place for 2 years.
To determine the estimated impact of the proposed ballot question on your 2024 taxes, follow the instructions below.
Your 2024 taxes will be based on the 2023 total assessed value of your property. Since the 2023 assessments are not available at this time, you will use your 2022 property values to estimate the tax impact on your property. To estimate the tax impact, you can use the total estimated fair market value of your property from your State of Wisconsin Real Estate Property Tax Bill for 2022. You will find your fair market value listed as “Total Est. Fair Mkt.” on your tax bill (right insert). Please note we will not be using the “Total Assessed Value”, which is also included on your tax bill.
Property tax impact calculations of the election are estimates for the initial year of this operating referendum only, and do not included tax levies for other purposes. The actual tax amount associated with the successful passage of this referendum will vary based on the following factors:
