The Mecklenburg Board of County Commissioners adopted the Fiscal Year 2020 Budget during its regular meeting Tuesday night. The budget takes effect July 1, 2019.
The $1.9-billion budget is an increase of $158 million, or 9.1 percent, over the current Fiscal Year 2019 operating budget. It rolls back the tax rate 25 percent from 82.32 cents to 61.69 cents per $100 of assessed value.
For example, if a $250,000 home increased by 40.41 percent, following the revaluation, then the new value of the home will be $350,000. When calculated with the tax rate of 61.69 cents, the tax increase will equal less than $9 a month.
