LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The school board has unanimously approved a new tax rate for Jefferson County property owners.
The approved property tax is 79.6 cents per $100 of assessed value.
It’s less than the rate in 2020, which is currently being challenged in court, but it’s is more than what Jefferson County residents were paying in 2019 and 2020.
Board documents show JCPS expects to bring in an estimated $636 million.
Nearly $43 million will go to the building fund and the rest to the general fund.
