Updated Tax Calculations for Budget FY 21-22

We are writing to apprise the Washington Central Unified Union School District (WCUUSD) community of some new education tax rate estimates for the WCUUSD Budget 21-22.  This new information was received after the printing of the Annual Budget Report. 

Using the latest education tax information provided by the House Ways and Means Committee, all 5 towns in Washington Central are projected to have a tax decrease for the upcoming budget year.  The new tax information uses the budget presented to the voters along with, updated equalized pupil information received from the Agency of Education.

In summary, the equalized education tax rate is projected to decrease by 7.1 cents. At the local level the amount varies using the Common Level of Appraisal.  Here is the new information by town showing the decrease in taxes:

Berlin -15.5 cents, Calais -4.3 cents, East Montpelier -8.3 cents Middlesex -1.7 cents and Worcester -5.7 cents.
