When your school tax bill arrives in the mail shortly you will be greeted by an increase of 3.2%.
The school board approved the $84.6 million 2019-2020 budget on June 10. For a home assessed at the district average of $179,000 with a current annual school tax bill of about $8,100, the new budget would result in an additional $260 in taxes.
Under the state’s Act 1 index for the district, Wallingford-Swarthmore’s tax hike would be limited to 2.3%, but the district is taking advantage of a permitted exception for special education costs that will tack on an additional 0.9%.
