In the May 3rd mid-term primary election, voters located within the boundary of the Valparaiso Community Schools will see on their ballot a single referendum question asking them if they will continue to support a reduced rate to property taxes for the purpose of managing class sizes and essential health & safety initiatives, retaining teachers and staff, funding academic and educationally related programs.

The language of the question is required by Indiana Code and was approved by the Dept. of Local Govt. Finance. The language in the May 2022 referendum was passed by legislators in Indianapolis the spring of 2021 in an effort to scare voters and take away local control. It uses a formula which does not correctly reflect the lowering of the tax rate. See this FAQ for more information.

To determine the tax impact for your property of the renewal at a reduced rate, fill out below the owner address where the tax bill is mailed and select a parcel from the results.
