Every year around tax levy time we run a series of articles written by our friend Carolyn Blow which seeks to make the types of levies and their effects on your taxes clear. It also explains why, even though levies claim “not a new tax” your taxes increase, anyway.
This is a 10 part series. It can be accessed here- http://www.principledpolicy.com/series/understanding-property-tax-levies/page/2/
It will open on the link to the first article and you can get the rest by clicking the “next entries” button on the bottom of the post or by clicking on the links to the rest of the individual entries of the series at the top of the post.
