Estimated tax rate increase
With the use of $7.2 million from the district’s capital reserve fund, it is estimated that the project would result in a tax rate increase of 1.89%, or $47.80 for a home in the town of Manlius assessed at $100,000, which would be phased in over a four-year period beginning in 2024-25.
That is estimated to equate to an average per-year increase of $11.95 per $100,000 of taxable value.1.89%, which equates to $47.80 per $100,000 of taxable value.
