Tax Notes

  • School District Tax Rates:

    The Board of Education typically sets the tax rates for each school year in August.  The tax rates are based upon the total tax levy for the year in the approved budget and final municipal assessments for each of the five towns in the district (Clinton, Hyde Park, Pleasant Valley, Poughkeepsie & Rhinebeck).

    Tax rates can vary between the towns because property in each town could be assessed at different levels in relation to full market value.  After each town submits their final assessment information to the State Office of Real Property Services each summer, NYS assigns each town an equalization rate to account for any differences in assessment practices.  The equalization process is designed to fairly apportion the total tax levy between the towns and result in similar tax bills for properties with similar values regardless of municipality.  The School District does not control any part of the assessment or equalization process.  Equalization Rates Explanation
