Tax Levy Rising for UT District
Taxes will probably go up next year for residents of the United Township School District. Monday night the school board will vote on next year's tax levy.
Superintendent Jay Morrow says the proposed levy is 9.1 million dollars, $460,000 or about 5 per cent higher than this year. And that would raise the property tax rate by 5 cents, to $1.93 per $100 assessed value.
Morrow says some of the increase is due to rising property values, about 2 per cent, in the U-T district.
School districts and other taxing bodies in Illinois are required to submit their levy requests to their counties by the end of December.
