SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - The Sheboygan Area School District tax rate may be going up next year, but property owners may see the tax they pay for the schools go down.
Superintendent Joe Sheehan, on Sheboygan’s Morning News Wednesday, explained that the mill rate is going up for this school year, thus, people will pay more per thousand. However, school officials told the school board Tuesday night that property values in the district have dropped by nearly two percent. This means that when you combine this with a drop in the tax levy by around 55-hundred dollars from last school year, you will have most residents paying less in their overall tax bill to the Sheboygan Area School District.
Final figures won’t be available until the state finishes work on the property tax relief bill. The board is scheduled to meet in three weeks to finalize the budget and tax rate.
