Vermont House to debate school taxes
MONTPELIER (AP) - The Vermont House is slated to debate increasing statewide education property tax rates.
A bill before the House on Thursday would raise the rate on a house and up to two acres from 94 cents to 98 cents per $100 of property value.
The tax rate on non-residential properties would go from $1.44 to $1.51.5 per $100 of value.
Several amendments are expected to be offered as the House debates the bill, including one to scrap Vermont's current highly complex school funding system.
