Note: As property valuations decrease, the tax rate increases. The reverse is also true when property values increase, the tax rate decreases. This means you should not expect your property taxes paid the following year to be less than the year before. Other impacts to future tax rates could include: Overrides, debt exclusions etc. As a Debt Exclusion is repaid, it is deducted off the tax rate because it is of a temporary nature.Override = Permanent tax increase (personnel, salaries, benefits etc.
Debt Exclusion = temporary tax increase for capital expenses
Capital Expense = Buildings, equipment etc.
