City of La Crosse, Land of the Tax Freeze
When you list the inevitabilities in life, taxes are probably in the top five. Ever increasing taxes. Unless you live in the city of La Crosse, that is. Property taxes overall will go up in the city this year, just like they have every year probably since there were property taxes. But this year, for the second consecutive year, the city council has approved an operating budget for the coming year that includes no property tax rate increase. The owner of a 120 thousand home will still write a check to the city for about $1470. Same as last year. Same as the year before. Tax rates for county government, school district and tech system all are increasing.
