Property Tax Increase Proposal in Washington County


Several tax increases could bring extra revenue for Washington County and one of those is a property tax hike.

The current county property tax stands 3.9 mills.

It generates nearly $12.5 million in tax revenue. The new proposal would make it 5 mills.

Nearly $16.5 million in tax revenue would come in if it is passed by the quorum court.

For taxpayers owning a $100,000 property, the proposal would equal to an extra $22 a year in property tax.

Currently, five mills is the highest a county can tax on properties without voter approval.

The Washington County quorum court will meet tonight to talk about the millage increase.
