North Mason taxpayers will notice three distinct “school taxes” listed on their property tax statement. Only one of these taxes actually go directly to North Mason School District.
The “School” tax is the tax that is collected to pay for the bond that was approved by community members in 2013. The money that is collected through this tax goes directly to principle and interest payments on that bond. It cannot be used to support District programs or operations. The current rate per $1K of assessed value is $1.08 (2021 rate).
The “State School PT 1” and the “State School PT 2” is valued at $2.95 per $1K of assessed value (2021 rate). This tax is collected and sent directly to Washington State- not your local school district. Washington State gathers this tax from all Washington State property owners. This funding is pooled at the State level. It is given back to districts as a revenue based on how many students are enrolled in the district. If a community has more property than students (like North Mason School District) your “extra” money helps fund a district with more students than property (like Seattle or Bellevue).
