• County School Facility Occupation Tax

     

    On November 6, 2018 Kendall County voters will see a question on the ballot regarding sales tax. The County School Facility Occupation Tax, adds 1 % to the tax rate on certain retail purchases. The tax dollars are sent to the public school systems serving children who reside in Kendall County.
     
    The Board of Education in Oswego Community Unit School District 308 has adopted a policy that would direct all the money received from the 1% sales tax, if passed, towards the retirement of debt, thus lowering property taxes.
