Preliminary Tax Bills have been issued and are due November 1, 2013
The bill is preliminary due to an unexpected employee illness, making it impossible to complete the re-evaluations required for setting the tax rate this year. This preliminary fall tax bill was determined by dividing your FY13 net tax amount in half. The FY14 tax rate is expected to be set by February 2014, thus your spring bill will reflect the actual FY14 tax amount minus your FY14 preliminary payment. There will be an Assessors’ open house for questions announced at that time.
In order to fund the operating budget that was approved at annual town meeting in May, Conway needs to raise approximately $350,000 dollars more in taxes this fiscal year than last. This is an increase of approximately 10%. For example, if a Conway taxpayer last year had a total property tax bill of $3,000, this year the total property tax bill will be $3,300, a $300 increase. Due to the preliminary fall bill, rather than being divided between the spring and spring bills, the entire increase will appear on the spring bill. We are letting you know so that you can plan your budget accordingly. Please note that the 2.5% tax increase limit applies to the Levy Limit not your actual tax bill. For more information please contact the town offices by email at [email protected] or [email protected]
Any questions regarding FY14 assessments, values or preliminary tax amounts should be directed to the Assessors at (413) 369-4235 x5 or the Tax Collector at (413) 369-4235 x1.
