Assessment & Budget Information
Dear Conservancy Property Owner:
At the November 21, 2022 meeting, the Board of Trustees approved the Conservancy Budget for Fiscal Year 2023, which begins on January 1, 2023 and ends on December 31, 2023.
For the next year, the General Assessment will be $157.00 per quarter. Statements will be sent to you the first week of January 2023, April 2023, July 2023 and October 2023. To avoid a late fee, payments must be received no later than January 31, 2023, April 30, 2023, July 31, 2023 and October 31, 2023.
These statements will also include cluster assessments where applicable. The cluster assessment, presented as applicable in a letter that was mailed to every homeowner in Burke Centre, will vary based on the services provided to your cluster and the level of funding for your various cluster reserve funds. The cost of trash collection is a direct pass-through and is split again for 2023 between attached and detached homes.
The Burke Centre Conservancy has been granted Federal income tax exemption under Section 501(a) by the Internal Revenue Service. However, assessments paid to the Conservancy are not tax deductible as donations under Section 170 (c) (2) of the Internal Revenue Code. Please consult your tax advisor for details.
If you have any questions about your individual assessment, please do not hesitate to contact the Finance Department at 703-978-2928.
