33 Proposed Tax Levy- Allowable tax levy increase2.61% Proposed tax levy increase2.00% Proposed Budget increase $53 Percentage Budget increase.0004%

34 The 3 Numbers that affect your tax rate: The tax levy from the School District From the budget approved by the voters. The higher the levy, the higher the tax rate Fixed in May The Equalization Rate set by the State Brings the assessed value up to full value if no re-evaluation has been done by the Township The lower the equalization rate the higher the full value and the higher your tax rate Fixed in August The Assessed Value of the District set by the Tax Assessor for the Town. From home improvements, new construction, etc. The more improvements, the higher the assessed value and the lower the tax rate. Fixed in August

35 Proposed Budget / Property Taxes When equalization rates drop, the full market value increases and thus property taxes regardless of the district budget.

36 Proposed Budget/Property Taxes- Star Exemptions cannot increase by more than 2% from the previous year

37 Proposed Budget/Property Taxes/Basic STAR Exemption

38 Proposed Budget/Property Taxes/ Enhanced STAR Exemption

39 Home w/ Assessed Value of $100,000/ Basic STAR Exemption-

40 Home w/ Assessed Value of $100,000 Enhanced STAR Exemption

41 Contingency Budget- New Rules With a contingency budget, the school’s tax levy cannot be anymore than the previous year’s tax levy It still has to maintain an Administrative Cap-  The percentage it comprised in the previous year’s budget exclusive of the capital portion of the budget

42 Contingency Budget Increase allowed in budget over previous year, no longer applicable-

43 Administrative Cap is still applicable

44 Current Fund Balance Reserve for Employee Benefit Accrued Liability$330,225.22 Reserve for Debt$202,267.43 Appropriated Fund Balance to offset Property Taxes$550,000.00 Assigned Fund Balance –Previous Yr’s Encumbrances$ 4,482.00 Unassigned Fund Balance (4% of Budget)$594,290.26 Total Fund Balance1,681,264.91 Estimated Fund Balance at end of June 2012 Beginning Fund Balance$1,681,264.91 Less: Amt offset property taxes $ (550,000.00) Less: Use of Reserve for Debt$ ( 36,893.00) Fund balance at end of June 2012$1,094,371.91

45 Future Fund Balance- Beginning Fund Balance July 1, 2012  Reserve for Liabilities $328,529.00  Reserve for Debt $168,374.43  Reserve for Encumbrances (est.) $4,000.00  Unassigned Fund Balance $593,468.48 Total Fund Balance Beg.July2012 $1,094,371.91 Estimated Unassigned Fund Balance End of June, 2013 Less: Amt. Approp. to offset Property Taxes ($460,000.00) Ending Fund Balance June 2013 $634,371.91 Make up of Ending Fund Balance June 2013 Less: Reserve for Liabilities $328,529.00 Less: Reserve for Debt $168,374.43 Unassigned FB June 30, 2013………………….$137,468.48 Equal.9% ( Should be 4%)

46 Estimated Fund Balance June 2013 July 1, 2012$1,094,371.91 June 30, 2013 $ 634,371.91 We’ll have used 58% of our fund balance in one year.

47 Problem w/ Fund Balance Unless we can continue to come up with an amount to offset property taxes equal to $460,000 next year, we would have to raise taxes by that amount or cut the budget by that amount. $460,000 is equal to a 13% tax increase alone, which is way above the Tax Levy Cap imposed by Gov.Cuomo. $460,000 in budget cuts would seriously impact the programs at BCS. We will be out of Reserves and Fund Balance by 2014-15 Budget, unless we receive more state or federal aid.

48 Passage of the Proposed Budget Even if the District’s Proposed Budget is still under the Tax Levy Cap-  The proposed budget must pass by a majority vote of at least 51%

49 Passage of the Proposed Budget If a District wishes to pass a budget that is over the tax levy cap- The Budget must pass by 60% of the voters of the District Brocton’s proposed budget for 2012-13 is under the Tax Levy Cap
