Truman School Levy Decrease 18 Dec 12

The Truman School Board on Monday approved a property tax levy for 2013 that is a 5% decrease over this year. The Truman Public School tax levy will fall by over $34,000, to around $633,000 for the 2013-2014 school year. Of that amount, approximately $462,000 comes from a voter-approved operating levy and debt service. Truman Superintendent Tom Ames says that the amount homeowners actually pay in taxes is determined by property valuations, so even though the levy is less, taxes could possibly go either up or down.
