One of a few Kuna School bonds will soon expire. You have a right to vote on this extension on Tuesday, March 11, 2014. If the bond is extended, your property taxes will NOT decrease. If the bond is stopped, your property taxes WILL decrease, saving you money. You need to make an informed decision. Calculate the amount of money you will save, by ending this permanently “temporary” levy:
- Go to Ada County Assessor’s web site:
- Click, “search by address” on the left side.
- Click, “I accept use of terms” and “submit” box near the bottom
- Type your address in the box
- Locate your address in the list, it should be near the top
- Click the parcel number along the left side, next to your address
- Click “view 2013 assessment notice” box near the bottom
- This will either save a pdf on your machine or open directly
10. Write down your “net taxable property value”
11. Multiply your net taxable property value by 0.00368
12. The number reflects the amount of taxes you paid for the school bond for 2013.
13. But, expect this number to be slightly higher. As property assessments rise, this number will rise.
Many homeowner’s in subdivisions such as Denali Heights, will SAVE more than $1000 a year! Walnut Creek will SAVE on average $600, and Crimson Point will SAVE $300-500, on average.
Every household, every business has been forced to control their expenses. Why should taxing entities be exempt?
Regardless of your position, please vote.
