Basehor-Linwood School District increases levy by 6.39 mills
Taxes for public education will increase this year for property owners in the Basehor-Linwood School District.
The Basehor-Linwood School Board unanimously approved the 2009-2010 budget at Monday’s meeting, which included an increase to the district’s mill levy. The levy is up 6.39 mills from last year, making the current mill levy 61.034.
A mill is $1 in taxes for every $1,000 in assessed property valuation.
The increase is driven by a large spike in the district’s bond and interest, which went up from $2,199,040 to $3,325,551 because of the bond issue being used for Basehor-Linwood’s two new schools.
Easing the rise in this mill levy is the district’s assessed valuation numbers, which are up $1.3 million from last year.
