School Districts & Library Taxes – How does it work?
“All public Libraries are chartered by the NYS Board of Regents. All chartered Association libraries are under the authority of the Board of Regents and may receive funds authorized by the voters of the school district. These funds are then collected by the school district and disbursed to the library.”
What does the Library Budget Vote mean to the average property owner?
At the current equalization rates, the Library’s proposed tax increase would raise your 2015 Library Tax bill by $0.82 if the actual (not the assessed) value of your home is $90,000. Your total 2015 Library Tax bill would be $16.79 (not including any reduction for the Star Rebate) according to Timothy Allard, Assistant Superintendent of Management Services, CSCSD.
