The District School Board of Pasco County will soon consider a measure to increase its property tax levy.

Last year’s property tax levy:

A. Initially proposed tax levy… $207,064,116

B. Less tax reductions due to Value Adjustment Board and other assessment

changes… ($413,789) C. Actual property tax levy $207,477,905

This year’s proposed tax levy $227,813,375

A portion of the tax levy is required under state law in order for the school board to receive $446,068,175 in state education grants.

The required portion has increased by 4.69 percent, and represents approximately six tenths of the total proposed taxes.

The remainder of the taxes is proposed solely at the discretion of the school board.

All concerned citizens are invited to a public hearing on the tax increase to be held on July 27, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. in the School Board Meeting Room at the District Office located at 7205 Land O’Lakes Boulevard, Land O’Lakes, FL 34638.
