STC School Board Approves Tax Rate Reduction

posted Apr 11, 2019, 6:06 PM by Dixie Forcht
On Monday, April 8th the STC School Board approved a tax rate reduction for all South Tama County citizens. The overall tax rate was reduced from $16.13 to $15.35. This means that every South Tama County resident will save $60 per $1000 of income taxes that are owed to the State of Iowa beginning July 1, 2019. 

This fall, the South Tama County Schools are requesting support for the Physical Plant & Equipment Levy (PPEL) to help generate $5 million over ten years to spend on projects such as building repairs, facility improvements, technology, and equipment. Approval of PPEL is not anticipated to result in a tax increase.
