Taxes and Fees

Property tax caps are also affected by new construction, which have averaged less than .5 percent in recent years in District 54 (in 2013 new construction accounted for .96 percent). In the 2014-15 District 54 budget state aid accounts for 20 percent and federal aid 3 percent of overall revenues. School districts receive no sales taxes.
