The Management of the Hillsboro Fire Protection District strives for transparency. We want our tax payers to know where their money is going and how it is being spent. We are more than happy to discuss any questions our taxpayers may have. Here are a few facts: For the Fiscal Year 2017 (Jan. 1, 2017 through Dec. 31, 2017) the Hillsboro Fire District's tax rate is $0.6415 per $100.00 of assessed valuation. This typically cost a homeowner of a $150,000.00 house $183.00 a year or 50 cents a day. Recently the Hillsboro Fire District had a sales tax levy passed which will eventually lower your tax rate in 2018! Our current budget for FY2016 is $1,054,980. This money goes to maintain 9 pieces of apparatus, 2 engine houses, 9 full time paid firefighters, and 25 volunteer firefighters. Our budget will drop in 2018, when we roll our property tax rate back to account for the sales tax. Check out the link to view our FY 2017 budget. FY 2017 Proposed Budget
