The following PUB Order No.32/15 was received in our office today, March 13, 2015. This order will take effect immediately and will be reflected on your 2015 tax bills. There will however, be some changes to the rate as the information sent to the Public Utilities Board was done before the 2015 Budget was completed.
How will the PUB Order affect Taxes?
We have received several questions concerning the PUB Order and how it will affect taxes. The simplest explanation is to take a look at your 2014 tax bill, find the municipal tax calculation (first line on the bill) and take off 35% or approximately 1/3 of the total municipal tax. This is what each property paid for the pumpout costs in 2014. After you have reducedthe municipal portion, add in the $494.00 for the sewer utility rate, as ordered by the Public Utilities Board.
For example, if you paid $1,000.00 in municipal tax in 2014, remove $350.00 and add in $494.00. This would mean a net increase of $144.00 for the property in the example.
