Basehor-Linwood School District increases levy by 6.39 mills

August 13, 2009

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.

"The levy is up 6.39 mills from last year" "mill is $1 in taxes for every $1,000 in assessed property valuation" So Kaitlyn, according to your report for $200.000 home taxes just went up 6.39x1x200=$1278 per year!!!!!!!!! "current mill levy 61.034. that makes it roughly $61 per 1000 accoring to you report. 61X1X200=$12200 in property taxes for $200000 home which is nonsence! Kaitlyn, do you read what you type? Does it make sence to you?

Editor's note: Nalexks' example above does not differentiate between "appraised value" and "assessed value." In Kansas, residential property is assessed for tax purposes at 11.5 percent of appraised value. In addition, the first $20,000 of appraised value of a home is exempt from school property taxes. Taxes on a $200,000 home, thus, would rise about $132.
