2018 Referendum

Due to growth in Avon-Washington Township and wise financial management, we have been able to reduce the voter-approved tax rate by 32%.
Scott Wyndham, Ed.D., Superintendent

What is a Referendum? 

A Referendum is a general vote by the electorate (eligible voters) on a single political question that has been referred to them for a direct decision. 

What are Property Tax Caps? 

Property Tax Caps are in the Indiana Constitution and "cap" property taxes at 1% for residential, 2% for apartments/farmland, and 3% for all other property (including business). A successful referendum may result in property taxes that exceed property tax caps.
