Citizen creates property tax calculator

In an effort to help Chaffee County residents understand the potential ramifications of upcoming mill levies and bond issues advanced by both the school district and the city, Salida Citizen staff have created an online property tax calculator. Owners of either residential or commercial property may enter the assessed value of their property and see the annual cost increase (or decrease) incurred by supporting the various measures on the ballot.

You can view the property tax calculator here until we move it to this site.

For more information, check out the School Board explanation for the mill levies and be sure to follow John Rouse’s blog.

The Citizen is happy to provide a forum for comments and discussion. Please be civil, truthful, and relevant. Please suggest removal of comments that violate these standards. Real names are appreciated.
