Yesterday, Monroe County received its budget order for 2014 from the Indiana Department of Local Government Finance. This means that the Department of Local Government Finance has approved for Monroe County:
- The budgets for all taxing units
- The property tax levies and tax rates for all taxing units
- The property tax rates for each taxing district (i.e., the tax rates that actually affect each property owner)
The budget order doesn’t really offer any big surprises. All tax rates for all taxing districts have gone up slightly. As in previous years, tax rates in Ellettsville taxing districts are highest in the county. Bloomington tax rates are next, though substantially lower than those in Ellettsville. Tax rates in the unincorporated areas, not surprisingly, are the lowest, with those in Washington Township the very lowest in Monroe County.
