Wisconsin School District Taxes and Levy Rates

Section H of Basic Facts

General Information

School district property taxes include levies for general operations, debt service, capital expansion, and community services. Property values are equalized to reflect market value rather than local assessed value. The equalized levy rate is the total property tax levy divided by the current year equalized property value with tax incremental financing (TIF) values excluded. Levy rates are shown in "mills" or property tax dollars levied per $1,000 of equalized property value.
