The Granite School District Board of Education will meet Thursday, August 12 at the Granite Education Center (2500 S. State Street) to finalize the 2021-2022 budget and hold a public tax hearing at 6 p.m.
Question: Is Granite School District raising my property taxes?
Answer: No, but your tax notice may give the impression that taxes are being raised.
- When voters approved the Granite Bond in 2017 the school district promised to shift the debt levy to the capital levy when bond payments began to decrease. This allows the district to continue funding school building renovation and rebuild projects by maintaining tax revenue.
- The board is now fulfilling that promise, which requires the aforementioned shift in the levies.
- Your tax notice may give the impression of an increase, but your tax rate as charged by Granite School District will stay the same. Other factors (especially home value) may affect your overall property tax payment, but as for your tax rate to Granite, there is no net tax increase to you.
