Correction: Monkton taxes going down, not up

Posted on September 2, 2018 |
By Christopher Ross



ADDISON COUNTY — Property tax bills for Monkton residents will be smaller for fiscal year 2019 — not larger, as erroneously reported in our Aug. 27 edition. Mistakes were made in calculating the effect of the Common Level of Appraisal on tax bills in several towns.

The total property tax rate for residents, $1.5402, will result in a tax decrease of $48.90 per $100,000 of assessed property. Nonresidents, whose total tax rate is $1.5726, will see a less severe increase in their bills than previously reported — $73.10 per $100,000.
