AN ACT TO PROVIDE FOR THE LEVY AND COLLECTION OF SCHOOL TAXES IN YORK COUNTY AND TO PROVIDE FOR THE DISTRIBUTION OF THE REVENUE FROM THE TAX.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
Levy, distribution of millage
SECTION 1. The auditor of York County shall levy and the treasurer shall collect a tax of thirty mills for school purposes to be distributed to the four school districts in the county as follows: twenty-nine mills must be distributed to each of the four districts; however, one additional mill must be distributed to the district with the lowest assessed value. The twenty-nine mill distribution to the four school districts must be in the proportion to the ratio which each school district's one hundred thirty-five day enrollment (average daily membership) bears to the one hundred thirty-five day enrollment (average daily membership) in the county. However, that enrollment in parochial schools or other nonpublic schools may not be counted for the purposes and these schools are not allowed the use of the proceeds of the taxes imposed by this act.
Revenues must be paid to districts
SECTION 2. All revenues collected pursuant to this act or because of a tax levy imposed for school purposes by any school district must be paid over to the school districts in the manner and under the ratio set forth above and, notwithstanding any other local law provision to
the contrary, no collection rate of these taxes is guaranteed to any school district and these districts are only entitled to receive such tax revenue as is collected pursuant to this act.
SECTION 3. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
Approved the 30th day of June, 1987.
