August 15 meeting after receiving final equalization rates from the state.

The tax rates differ among the towns because, as is often the case in school districts that span multiple municipalities, properties in different communities are assessed at varying levels in relation to full-market value. The state assigns each town an “equalization rate” in an effort to fairly distribute the amount of taxes each town must pay.

Stillwater residents approved a school budget proposal of $24,529,950 in May. At the time of the budget vote, the district estimated the tax rates would increase by 2 percent or less.

Tax bills will be mailed at the end of August, and are due by Oct. 1 without penalty.
