Preliminary tax certification for taxes payable 2023
Michelle Vargas, chief financial officer, presented the preliminary tax certification for board approval. The action sets the maximum tax levy payable in 2023, an amount that will be reviewed and authorized at the Dec. 12 School Board meeting. Vargas explained that the levy amounts are mainly guided through state funding formulas and voter approved levies. The recommended 6.65 percent maximum tax levy will be forwarded to the county to establish draft tax statements. A truth-in-taxation public hearing will precede consideration of approval on Dec. 12. The setting of the preliminary tax certification was approved on a 5-0 vote, with board member Jeff Simon absent.
