Taxpayers in the Meridian School District will pay less in property taxes in 2013.
The district's school board voted unanimously earlier this month to roll back $100,000 in levy collection because the state didn't cut levy equalization funding as feared, according to Tom Churchill, superintendent for Meridian.
Levy equalization funding helps property-tax poor districts that can't raise much revenue through taxes.
Whether the rollback will continue in 2014 depends.
"The board will see what happens in the Legislature during the session in 2013 before deciding on a rollback for 2014," Churchill said in an email.
