The full Village Mil Rate for tax year 2023/payable 2024, will decrease by .24 cents from the previous year. The full 2022 tax rate was $20.73/$1000 of valuation. The new 2023 tax rate is $20.49/$1000 of valuation. Thus a $300K home will pay $6,147 in taxes in 2024 (down $72 from last year). The decrease is attributed to sound financial investments, successful economic development efforts, an increase in the State’s tax credit and a reduction in the Holmen School District’s portion of the tax rate.

The new polling separates the “western” areas of Holmen which will now vote at the Library (Wards 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 & 12), from the “eastern” areas of Holmen which will continue to vote at the Village Hall (Wards 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 & 11). The separating line from the South to the North, follows along Holmen Drive, then to and along the Halfway Creek and […]
