Property owners in unincorporated Crawford County may soon see the benefits of a tax cut, but residents shouldn’t make any major life changes in anticipation of the windfall.
County Manager Pat Kelly said the commissioners are expected to vote Thursday on the tax cut, which will lower the county government’s tax rate from 12.534 mills to 12.53 mills.
“We’re dropping that third digit,” Kelly said. The move will make life somewhat easier for the county’s tax collector. The loss of revenue, countywide, is about $1,100.
The change will mean about a 16-cent tax savings on a $100,000 house. The vote is scheduled for 9:15 a.m. Thursday in the commissioners’ Paul Coverdell Room, following a 9 a.m. called meeting.
Kelly said the school system’s tax rate remains steady at 13.5 mills.
