The property tax relief is so negligible that some residents may actually see their taxes rise. Despite the shaving of the tax levy, County tax rates are going up for taxpayers. If your assessment on your home was not reduced in 2014, then you are potentially facing an increase in your individual tax bill because the rate is going from $3.65/$1000 to $3.68/$1000.
The County’s tax base continues to decline by $400M, a total decline of $9.28 billion over 7 years.
