Monthly Property Tax Impact
This mill levy override, if approved by voters, would mean a net property tax increase for residential property owners* within the Weld RE-4 School District, estimated monthly at:
Per $100,000 of actual residential property value - $0.96
Per $450,000 of actual residential property value - $4.32
Per $600,000 of actual residential property value - $5.77
This mill levy override would be phased in over two years, and would be ongoing.
*Commercial property tax rates are approximately four times the residential rate, depending on property classification.
