Below the total tax requests from Fire Protection Districts in McHenry County for last year are compared to the ones which will be reflected in the real estate tax bills about to arrive in people’s mailboxes:
The Barrington Countryside Fire Protection District shows the biggest decrease. In all likelihood, this is because it is located in four counties and some adjustment has been made that benefited its McHenry County residents. Wauconda FPD, which also overlaps into another county showed a slight decrease in extraction of real estate taxes from McHenry County property owners.
Fox River Grove’s went down 4%, even though its tax rate will be increasing. The result will be $49,000 less being paid by residents.
The McHenry Township FPD will increase its tax take the most–5%, which amounts to $325,000.
The following will see over 2% increases:
- Algonquin-Lake in the Hills +2.35%
- Hebron-Alden-Greenwood +2.05
- Nunda Rural +2.03%
- Spring Grove +2.08%
- Woodstock +2.21%
The Property Tax Cap allowed a 1.5% increase this year. Districts getting more than that included taxes on newly-constructed property.
