The Town is a full-service municipality, providing general government, fire, police, parks, recreation, open space, planning and code enforcement services through taxation. The owner of a median-valued home in Town ($448,889) only pays the Town $35.53 a year in property tax in exchange for all of those services. (The lion's share of a resident's property tax payment goes to the Douglas County School District - the Town receives only about 3% of its tax revenue via property taxes.)
It is important for you to know how the Town prioritizes and spends your property tax dollars. Enter your address on the Douglas County Assessor's website to find details of how your property taxes are allocated.
