  • What is a "levy limit"?Back to top

    A "levy limit" could be simply defined as a mechanism that prohibits a taxing authority from levying taxes above a specific threshold.

    Examples of levy limitations would include:

    • Overall levy limitations determined by the Department of Revenue on the total levy of taxing authorities;
    • Specific levy limitations imposed in the statutes that authorize levies for specific purposes;
    • The Truth-in-Taxation levy limitation that prohibits the final levy of certain authorities from exceeding the proposed levy; and
    • School district levy limitations as established by the Department of Education.

  • Do I need to submit a Property Tax Levy Report even though there are no levy limits currently in effect?Back to top

    Yes. The Property Tax Levy Report must be completed and returned by Dec. 30 each year, even if levy limits are not currently enacted.

    For more information, see Property Tax Levy Report.
