MONROE - Brodhead and Monroe city residents pay the highest tax rates in the county, according to year-end information compiled by the Green County Treasurer's office.

Brodhead's 2008 mill rate is 0.028755847, meaning residents there pay $28.76 per thousand dollars of assessed valuation on their home or property. For example, the owner of a home assessed at $100,000 would pay $2,876 in property taxes.

Taxes are almost as high in the City of Monroe: The tax rate there is $27.85 per thousand. The owner of a $100,000 home in Monroe will pay $2,785.

New Glarus comes in third highest in the county and highest among villages with a tax rate of $23.09. The owner of a $100,000 in the village will pay $2, 309.

Other villages in Green County and their tax rates, rounded to the nearest hundredth, are: Monticello, $19.87; Browntown, $21.33 (Monroe school district); Brooklyn, $23.10 (Oregon school district); Belleville, $21.96; and Albany, $20.27.

Tax rates for those living in townships generally are less than those for villages and cities because typically fewer municipal services such as streets, sewers and trash collection, are provided. But that's not always the case, and rates can vary within a township depending on which school district is levying taxes for the property.

For example, residents of Cadiz township who live within the Monroe school district have a tax rate of $26.13, while those in the Black Hawk school district will pay $26.89. Those in Monroe township are at the low end of the spectrum, with a tax rate of $16.83 for those in the Monroe school district and $15.80 for those in the Monticello school district.
