College of DuPage Board Approves 2017 Tax Levy Request
Nov 17, 2017 3:12 PM - The College of DuPage Board of Trustees voted Nov. 16 to request an operating tax levy for 2017 at the same level as the prior year's tax extension amount for the second consecutive year. The 2017 tax levy of $81.7 million is equal to the College's 2016 tax extension, the approximate amount of property tax revenue collected for that year. Additionally, the Board approved a debt levy abatement of $8.6 million, representing principal and interest due on bonds which the College funds using alternate revenue sources. This debt levy abatement results in an additional $3 million in savings for local taxpayers.
