Briefing on City Tax Revenue Sources
Takoma Park Taxes 101
During the March 9, 2016 City Council meeting City Manager Suzanne Ludlow gave a presentation on City tax revenue sources and provided some background information in advance of the Council’s budget work sessions.

Fiscal Year 2017
This info helps frame discussions going into work sessions which start in April and offers insight into how the proposed budget for fiscal year 2017 will be developed. Once the proposed budget is approved and voted on by the City Council it becomes the City of Takoma Park Adopted Budget for Fiscal Year 2017 and the official policy for how funds – including tax revenues – are spent in FY17. (Fiscal year 2017 starts on July 1, 2016 and extends to June 30, 2017.)
