Our District strives to manage all taxpayer dollars wisely.
RESIDENTIAL TAX IMPACT
If the referendum is approved, property taxes will increase on residences. The increase on a home with an estimated market value of $100,000 would be $224.64 per year or $18.72 per month if all referendum questions pass.
Ag2School Tax Credit
What does the Ag2School Tax Credit mean for the 2018 ISD 601 Referendum?
The Ag2School Tax Credit is one of the more notable outcomes of the 2017 special legislative session and creates a more fair State share of school facility costs by targeting property tax relief to farm property for taxes paid on school bonds.
Who qualifies/what land qualifies for the credit?
Net Tax Capacity (NTC) of Qualifying Agricultural Property includes all class 2a (homestead and non-homestead ag land), 2b (rural vacant land) and 2c (managed forest land) property except the dwelling value (house, garage and one acre) of the property. (For more info MS 273.13 subd. 23)
How is the Ag2School Tax Credit calculated?
