North Highline Fire District
King County Fire District #11
Ballots Due August 5, 2014 - Proposition No. 1
In the 2014 King County Primary Election, there is a ballot measure for a Benet Charge for the North High
-line Fire District, Proposition No. 1. This fact sheet is intended to help the people in our district understand what
a Benet Charge is, how it will affect us and why our commissioners unanimously approved it.
What Is A Benet Charge?
A Benet Charge restructures the way the re district collects money from property owners. It is a fee that is based on specic attributes of a structure (like building size and use) and it‘s risk of re. The Benet Charge is not a tax and is not tied to assessed values of property like traditional property taxes that are paid to the re district.
 How Will A Benet Charge Affect You?
Currently in our district, property owners pay $1.50 tax per $1,000 of assessed value to the re district (except for exempt properties which pay $0). With a Benet Charge, property taxes would be reduced to $1.00 per $1,000 and then a benet charge is added to calculate the total payment to the re district.Under a Benet Charge, owners of homes and small structures pay less than owners of large buildings. Property taxes are reduced by 1/3 and replaced by the Fire Benet Charge. Exemptions remain in effect for low-income senior citizens and disabled persons.
