School District Income Tax
The Norton Board of Education is seeking support on an alternative way to generate revenue for our school district. On November 6, voters will be asked to vote on a School District Income Tax. If this tax is passed by voters, it will affect those who live within the Norton City School District and earn an income. Additionally, the 1.9 mill-Operating Levy (passed in 2012) will be removed from residents’ property taxes. If you are willing to assist the Norton School Levy Committee with educating the community about this tax, please contact the main office. For more information regarding the district’s finances and taxes, please visit the treasurer’s website.
