On the November 3rd, 2020 ballot, Taos County voters will have the opportunity to vote in favor of continuing the one-mill levy to support our local hospital. The mill levy would continue to provide our hospital with much needed financial assistance for a duration of four years. We kindly ask for your support and your vote.

A few facts about the mill levy:

  • The proposed one mill levy would be a continuation of what was approved in 2016 — not an increased mill levy.
  • It’s very common for a county to have a mill levy in place to support local hospitals. Taos County has one of the lowest tax rates for health care related services in the state (4.25 for Colfax, 4.25 for Rio Arriba, and 6.4 for Bernalillo, and just 1 for Taos).
  • The proposed one mill levy would be a continuation of what was approved in 2016 — not an increased mill levy.
  • A mill levy is a tax rate that is charged based on the net taxable value of a property. In Taos, the net taxable value of a property is 1/3 of its value. One mill reflects $1 per $1,000 of the net taxable value of a property.
  • Rural hospitals across the country are struggling financially and Holy Cross needs your help! Vote for the mill levy and keep vital health care services in our community!
