Under certain conditions, people with disabilities and citizens 61 years of age or older are eligible for a tax exemption.

For more information and to apply for an exemption, contact the Clark County Assessor’s Office (external link).

VPS is audited annually by the Washington State Auditor’s Office. In May 2019, the district received a clean audit report for the 13th consecutive year.


The rate for both local and state school-related taxes is estimated to be $6.45 in 2021.

Voters approve collection amounts for school levies. Tax rates are how much each property owner would pay per assessed $1,000. The actual rate may be different due to changes in state funding, property assessments and area growth; however, VPS can’t collect more than the amount that voters approved.

The estimated rates per thousand are:

  • 43 cents in 2021
  • 41 cents in 2022
  • 40 cents in 2023

To determine the amount for your property, divide the total assessment by 1,000 and multiply it by the rates above.

A home assessed at $350,000 would pay an estimated $150 for the first year.

The math:

350,000 ÷ 1,000 = 350

350 × 43 cents =  $150
