For as long as the ECT folks have lived here (20+ years) we have been (and continue to be) strong supporters of our Eagle County Public School District.
In fact – the ECT has put together a small survey of questions – to determine if (you too) are a strong supporter!
Fact: The Majority of the Property Taxes we all pay in Eagle County today – goes to Funding Public School Education.
1 – Have you paid your Property Taxes (on time and in full) for each year you’ve owned your Eagle County Property?
2 – Give yourself Extra Credit if you also own Commercial Property – because Commercial Property is Taxed at a 29% Rate vs. Residential at 7.96%
3 – If you are a RENTER – have you always paid your Rent – on time and in full? Because your Landlord is responsible to pay the Property Taxes on the property that you Rent!
4 – Has the Property you own (Commercial or Residential) seen an INCREASE in your Properties “assessed value” over the last several years? Simply put a “higher assessed value” on your Property – results in Higher Property Taxes you pay – Guaranteed! Have you paid your Increased Property Taxes on time and in full?
Well – if you, your Family and your Eagle County Business has answered YES to these questions – then the FACT IS – you too are a strong and consistent supporter of our Public School System!
Don’t let anyone in support of $152 Million Dollars of New/Additional Property Taxes in Eagle County (Ballot Questions 3A & 3B) – TELL YOU ANY DIFFERENT!!!
