A Vancouver School District Tax Levy Renewal proposition was approved on the February 12, 2013 election ballot in Clark County, which is in Washington.

This proposition authorized the a replacement property tax levy of $44 million in 2014, $44.6 million in 2015 and $45.2 million in 2016. The estimated levy rates for these tax collection would be 3.85 mill (%3.85 per $1,000 of assessed valuation), 3.86 mill ($3.86 per $1,000 of assessed valuation) and 3.84 mill ($3.84 per $1,000 of assessed valuation) respectively. This revenue would be used to fund educational needs and operations. This proposition is the first of two tax levy propositions proposed in the Vancouver School District. The second would impose a new property tax levy for six years but it depends on the approval of this first prop. as it does not take effect unless this proposition is passed as well.[1]
