Tax Rate

The budget for FY2020 reflects the impact of the 2019 Property Revaluation. Currently, the tax rate is 82.32¢ per $100 of assessed value. For FY2020, the County Manager recommends a tax rate of 61.69¢, which is 1.99 cents above revenue neutral. 

The tax bill impact under the proposed rate of 61.69¢ is as follows:

  • 34.58%: the percent of tax bills that would decrease.
  • 28.85%: the percent of tax bills that would increase no more than $10/month.
  • 36.58%: the percent of tax bills that would increase more than $10/month.

 

Here is an example:
If a home’s value went from $250k to $350k (an increase of 40.41%), the tax increase would equal less than $9 per month.
