Getting dessert twice

October 9, 2021

Boise legislators are sitting on a mountain of CARES – ARPA – Trumpy Dollars - Biden Bucks, etc. Yet many municipalities and entities within are asking homeowners, taxpayers, to pay more via levy increases.

It is like getting two servings of desert. First served by homeowners, taxpayers, then trickled down out of Boise.

The current ambulance district levy is .04% and they are asking for a raise to .06%. Anything above the current levy of .04% must be approved by voters.

Current levy (.04%) is approximately $32.09 per 100k assessed value.
Raising it to .06% will add 28.00 per 100k assessed value.

Kazam! $32.09 becomes $60.00 per 100k assessed value.

Noticed home sale prices lately?

Local Matters. Vote.
