Tax Levies

Tax Levies

The LWVCA supports criteria for Hamilton County-wide voted property tax levies.

A model tax levy process would include a committee of citizens with the authority to review tax levy proposals and tax levy recipient organizations and other criteria; reduction of the total number of voted levies without sacrificing needed services; timing that prevents placing all levies on a ballot at the same time; funding county services based on a determined level of need that balances funds, services and resources; funding broadly defined services that can respond to changing conditions and needs; provision of meaningful opportunities for citizen involvement, input, monitoring and review; assuring agency accountability to the Hamilton County Board of County Commissioners; ballot language that is understandable to citizens and accurately describes services funded by the proposed levy.
