During his year-long campaign for a county council seat, Mike Wismer found that funding for Los Alamos Public Schools was one of the primary issues raised by residents.
“It’s very important to property owners,” said Wismer, who was elected Nov. 4 to one of three vacant seats. “They want to know how much it will cost them and what they can expect in terms of facilities upgrades should the bond pass in January.”
The increase to taxpayers, if voters approve the bond is an average of $1.50 a day, according to the LAPS website, which lists a significant amount of information about the bond issue to help educate voters.
Specifically, residents whose full property value is $100,000 with a tax value of $33,333 can expect to pay an annual increase of $181.97 or $15.16 per month in new taxes. Residents with a $200,000 home and tax value of $66,667 will pay $363.94 a year or $30.33 per month in additional taxes.
A $300,000 home with a $100,000 tax value will incur $545.90 in new taxes annually or $45.49 monthly. A $400,000 home with a $133,333 tax value will realize $727.87 in added taxes annually or $60.66 monthly.
Residents who own a $500,000 home with a $166,667 tax value will see $909.84 in additional annual taxes or $75.82 per month.
