Proposed Jefferson County budget for 2013 includes tax increase

November 23, 2012

BROOKVILLE — The proposed 2013 budget for Jefferson County includes a tax increase, the commissioners announced at their meeting on Tuesday.

The commissioners approved a motion to place the 2013 budget on display for 20 days with the vote for adoption scheduled for Dec. 11.

Though the statute requires the proposed budget to be on display for 20 days, it will actually be available for 21 when all is said and done. It is available to be viewed upon request.

The tax increase is equal to one quarter of a mill, which determines tax amounts based on property values. A property valued at $50,000, for instance, will see a tax increase of $12.50.
