Levy Rates

Regular Levy

KCFD3 operates using funds levied by the county on property values in the district.

The operating budget each year is based on expected revenues from the levy. Each year, by law, we are allowed up to a 1% increase in property tax revenue over the previous year.

As property values in the district increase the levy rate decreases.

  • The current Regular Levy rate is $0.61 per $1,000 property value.

Excess Levy (Capital Bond)

KCFD3 has an Excess Levy for the Capital Bond that was voted for and approved by the constituents of the fire district in 2018. The district requires a levy amount that will cover the repayment cost of the Bond each year. The levy rate for the Bond has been decreasing as property values in the district increase.

  • The current levy rate for the Bond is $0.37 per $1,000 property values.
