County approves new tax rate

Washington County Fiscal Court passed a motion that approved the raising of real estate property tax rates by less than a penny. The motion passed by a 4-3 vote.

The Fiscal Court was previously taxing real estate at a rate of 8 cents per $100 of the assessed value. A state bill allows the court to raise that amount by four percent without the use of a public referendum. The court’s vote raises the tax rate by one-third of a cent and is projected to bring in about $16,000 more than last year.
