Example of Calculation of Aggregate Extension Base • Once Aggregate Extension Base is determined, then money is allocated to the various funds • The District has flexibility within its maximum tax rates to allocate funds to the most needy funds • However, the total must add up to the aggregate extension base • This is why one fund’s benefit is another fund’s loss (Robbing Peter to pay Paul) 7

Aggregate Extension Base Considerations • Senate Bill 318 and PTELL becomes effective on March

Aggregate Extension Base Considerations • Senate Bill 318 and PTELL becomes effective on March 1, 2016 • If approved, levy 2015 will be the final opportunity to increase the operating levies that will become the aggregate extension base for all future operating tax levies • Therefore, review your current levies to see if you are at your maximum tax rates • Don’t underestimate EAV growth • Be sure that all funds have a levy 8
