On Tuesday, November 8th, 2016, voters in the Portland Public School District will be asked to vote for a 4 year renewal of the 18 mill operating tax levy.
This millage renewal will NOT increase property taxes for homeowners. This levy applies only to industrial, commercial, business, rental, and second homes and does not affect the millage rate on owner-occupied primary residences. Because this is a renewal of the current operating millage, taxes on those properties will stay the same.
The non-homestead operating tax levy raises more than $1,139,937 each year and represents about 6.2% of the district’s General Fund budget.
