2017 Tax Rate

We realize there has been a significant increase in the property tax rate for 2017. The largest increases are the school portion of the tax rate which increased by $2.32 and the Town portion which increased by $1.71.  We thought it might be helpful to address concerns regarding the increase in the tax rate.


  • The budget and warrant articles voted on for 2017 totaled $1,961,348; this is an increase of $177,858 over 2016.  
  • As a result of the town-wide revaluation of property values done in 2016 and the decreased value of the power plant as a result of it closing, the overall valuation of the town decreased by $2,837,647.  This would increase the tax rate even if the budget had remained the same.  
  • In prior years, we have utilized funds from the unassigned fund balance to help off-set the tax rate.  As a result of the heavy storm damage in October, we had to request emergency use of $256,035 from the unassigned fund balance.  This did not leave us with enough funds available in the unassigned fund balance to off-set the tax rate for 2017.
  • The total amount the school district needed to raise by taxes increased by $1,916,847; Alexandria’s portion increased by $423,098.
  • The State Education Tax and County Tax increased slightly.
