School taxes pushing bills higher

Rising school district tax levies are pushing the total bill for property tax payers in Walworth County.

Taxpayers, on average, will pay nearly 10 percent more this year, pushed higher by an average 12.9 percent increase in school taxes.

Officials say the start of the county’s 10-year plan to shift special education costs from the county to the local school districts is one of the driving factors.

The town of Geneva saw the biggest jump in its gross tax levy at 20.6 percent—an increase largely driven by a 25.4 percent increase in the school district levy.

The town covers five school districts, including the Lake Geneva elementary district and the Badger High School district.
