Yesterday, Monroe County received its budget order for 2016 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 (i.e., county, cities and towns, school districts, townships, public library, special 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)
Here is a chart showing the 2016 tax rates by taxing district (along with the 2013, 2014, and 2015 rates for comparison):
Tax rates for all taxing districts actually went down this year, except for Bloomington Township and Salt Creek Township. Tax rates for these two districts went up a bit, because of fire debt service payments.
