Wilton rates will remain same as ’15
WILTON – The tax rate for 2016 is the same as last year – $26.34 per $1,000 valuation – however, tax bills were inadvertently sent out with the break down of 2015.
The breakdown for this year is:
Town – $6.39, up 13 cents; school – $16.42, down 11 cents; state school – $2.26, down 8 cents; and county – $1.27, up 6 cents.
Change in the school portions was caused by reassessing the apportionment. Lyndeborough’s percentage of the school population rose by 2.08 percent. Half of the apportionment is determined by the school population, the other half by equalized valuation.
The town portion rise was because of increases in the budget.
