A referendum is a public question placed on a ballot by a local unit. Past referenda have included construction projects (for various taxing units, including schools) and operating needs (for schools).
Property taxes that are approved by voters in a referendum are not subject to the property tax caps. Therefore, any successful referendum may result in a property tax bill that exceeds the caps (1% of assessed value for homesteads [owner-occupied residence], 2% for other residential properties and farmland, and 3% for all other property).
If a taxpayer feels that a controlled project has been artificially divided, they may submit a form to the Department requesting review of the project.
