The Auditor's office has recently released the 2008 payable 2009 property tax rates. An official copy of the rate sheet is available in that office on the second floor of the courthouse. I would like to put a good word in for the hard work and diligence of our local officials in getting all components in place for the approval and release of these rates.  Here is a link to the rates:

In addition to the rate sheet, I have also taken the rate information for our District and created a resource that you may also find valuable. It splits out each property tax dollar you pay by each taxing unit.  You'll be able to know to the nearest 1/1000th of a cent how much of each dollar you pay goes to each taxing unit.

All of this information is available on this District 2 Council website at the following link:

Two things I would like to note--your final tax due is dependent on any applicable homestead, mortgage, or other exemptions that apply to each property you own.  In addition, state-directed tax relief may also apply which can lower the net amount of tax due.  The Treasurer's office will be processing all data and send out tax statements in the coming month.  As always, if you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
