This column shows what your taxes will be this year IF EACH TAXING AUTHORITY DOES NOT CHANGE ITS PROPERTY TAX LEVY. These amounts are based on last year's budgets and your current assessment.

** Column 3 - "YOUR TAXES THIS YEAR IF PROPOSED BUDGET CHANGE IS ADOPTED"
This column shows what your taxes will be this year under the BUDGET ACTUALLY PROPOSED by each local taxing authority. The proposal is NOT final and may be amended at the public hearings shown on the front side of this notice.

Assessment Reductions Assessment Reductions currently on the property. Common reductions are Save Our Homes, Agricultural Lands, Conservation Lands, 10% Cap on Non-Homestead. Applies To Value Exemptions Exemptions currently on the property. Exemptions are usually based on characteristics of the property or property owner.

Save Our Homes All Taxes 47,495 Homestead Exemption All Taxes 25,000
Additional Exemption Non-School Taxes 25,000
Assessment Reductions: Properties can receive an assessment reduction for a number of reasons. Some of the common reasons are below:
 -  There are limits on how much your assessment can increase each year. The Save Our Homes program and the limitation for non-homestead property are examples.
 -  Certain types of property, such as agricultural land and land used for conservation, are valued on their current use rather than their market value.
 -  Some reductions lower the assessed value only for levies of certain taxing authorities.
If your assessed value is lower than your market value because limits on increases apply to your property or because your property is valued based on its current use, the amount of the difference and reason for the difference is listed above.
Exemptions are usually based on characteristics of the property or property owner. Examples include the homestead exemptions, veterans' disability exemptions and charitable exemptions. The discount for disabled veterans is included above. Many exemptions apply only to tax levies by the taxing authority granting the exemption.
