LI school districts set to release property tax report cards

Homeowners will soon find out how much more they may pay in school taxes as districts are getting ready to release their property tax report

WOODBURY - Homeowners will soon find out how much more they may pay in school taxes as districts are getting ready to release their property tax report cards.

Tomorrow morning, the state Department of Education is expected to release its full school tax report card.

Meanwhile, News 12 Long Island has reached out to every school district on Long Island to find out what their proposed tax levy will be next school year.

Among the 30 districts that responded, William Floyd has the highest proposed tax increase of 12.5 percent.

On the other end of the spectrum, Southold is asking for an increase of just more than 1 percent.

In only one district, Oysterponds, the proposed levy is going down. The district is asking for about 1.5 percent less than last year.

Long Islanders will have a chance to vote on the budgets May 17. If they don't pass, districts can put up a new budget, or have residents vote on the same one in June.
