Franklin County Commissioners Court members are hoping taxpayers look at the proposed $.47 tax rate to help fund the 2013 Budget as a reduction in taxes.
For those whose property was not revalued, it will be.
The Court voted to propose the tax rate at an even $.47, which is down $.002857 from the rate for the current budget year. It is up $.010458 from the effective tax rate ($.459542), which is the rate that would have collected approximately the same amount of tax revenue as the current budget year’s rate of $.472857. For details about the proposed budget, see the Aug. 23 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
