Dear Parents and Patrons:
Shortly after the defeat of the referendum in the November election, patrons began calling to see if they could donate what they would have paid in additional taxes. After reviewing the request, the Board approved the program at its regularly scheduled meeting on November 19, 2012.
The first two donors were Joe Siefker and Dr. Bill Riggs. If you want to participate in this volunteer effort to raise money to help reduce MVCSC’s financial deficit, please follow these directions.
Find the gross assessed value of your home on the following chart. The gross assessed value of your home is the market value of your home. It can be found on line 1a on the “Taxpayer and Property Information” sheet you received from the Hancock County Treasurer this fall.
Select the amount you wish to contribute from the tax amounts listed for your Gross Assessed Value. For example, a residential property valued at $178,000 would have paid $70.93 in additional property taxes in 2013. The referendum was for three years, so the total amount of additional property taxes would have been $212.79.
Write a check to Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation for the amount you intend to donate, and write DONATION on the memo line.
Mail the check to:
Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation
1776 West State Road 234
Fortville, IN 46040
Upon receiving the check, we will issue a receipt to you for tax purposes.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF MV!
