•  The mill rate for 2005/06 was $7.30 per $1,000 valuation.

•  Total Tax Commitment was $1,661,324.50.

•  One mill raises $227,686.10

•  The Property tax overlay was initially $65,837.98. Due to changes by the Maine Legislature in the Homestead Property Tax reimbursement program and an error interpreting how that change was to be calculated on the local level, that overlay was reduced by $43,366.38 for a net overlay of $22,471.60.

The town completed a factored revaluation during the summer of 2005, with the new values reflected in the April 1, 2005 valuation above.
