District 100 Referendum

The  District 100 Board of Education approved a referendum for the April 4, 2017 ballot asking residents for an increase to the limiting tax rate.  The referendum will bring an additional $2 million to the district and would increase taxes approximately $160 per year per $100,000 of the market value of a home with no homeowner exemptions.  The impact based on a current tax bill of $1000 is approximately $38 per year.  Please see the tax calculator below for an estimate based on your tax bill.  Community meetings are scheduled and are open to all South Berwyn residents, please see the dates below.    Please view this presentation  Presentación for more information on the upcoming referendum. 




Official Ballot Question


To the Voters of School District Number 100


Shall the limiting rate under the Property Tax Extension Limitation Law for Berwyn South School District Number 100, Cook County, Illinois be increased by an additional amount equal to 0.60% above the limiting rate for levy year 2015 for any purpose of said School District and be equal to 4.195% of the equalized assessed value of the taxable property therein for levy year 2017?


(1) The approximate amount of taxes extendable at the most recently extended limiting rate is $13,331,908 and the approximate amount of taxes extendable if the proposition is approved is $15,556,984.
(2) For the 2017 levy year the approximate amount of the additional tax extendable against property containing a single family residence and having a fair market value at the time of the referendum of $100,000 is estimated to be $160.11.
(3) If the proposition is approved, the aggregate extension for 2017 will be determined by the limiting rate set forth in the proposition, rather than the otherwise applicable limiting rate calculated under the provisions of the Property Tax Extension Limitation Law (commonly known as the Property Tax Cap Law).
