Cash Reserve Levy

Iowa Code 298.10 sets the limit for cash reserve levies. The cash reserve levy for a budget year shall not exceed twenty percent (20%) of the General Fund expenditures for the year previous to the base year minus the unexpended fund balance in the General Fund for the year previous to the base year. The unexpended fund balance, for purposes of calculating the cash reserve levy limit, is the sum of the assigned and unassigned fund balances in the General Fund.

Information on the cash reserve levies in each school district can be found on the Department of Management's website, in the spreadsheet entitled "Aid and Levy, Tax, and Program Summary".
