[ARCHIVED] Notice of Property Tax Increase



The Governing Board of Lincoln County state that it is unable to properly maintain, repair, construct, and reconstruct its roads and bridges. SDCL 10-12-13 now permits the County to establish a tax amount which may be levied, and such amount can increase each year with the amount of inflation and new construction. Therefore, the Board of County Commissioners of Lincoln County does now establish a property tax increase of $0.30 per $1,000 of taxable valuation starting with calendar year 2021 taxes payable 2022 and ending calendar year 2023 taxes payable 2024. This action has been taken by the Board and approved by unanimous vote of the full Board of County Commissioners.

 This decision may be referred to a vote of the people upon a petition signed by at least five percent of the registered voters in the district and filed with the governing body within twenty days of the first publication of this decision.

 Unless this action is referred to a vote of the people and reversed by such vote, this resolution authorizes the county auditor to spread a levy to raise tax dollars in the above stated amount, allowing for percentage increases from inflation and new construction in subsequent years.


Signed 7/6/2021.

Sheri Lund, Auditor, Lincoln County
