Property Tax Increase On The Agenda For County Commissioners

property-tax-Coffee County commissioners will meet Tuesday night (July 22) with a property tax increase on the agenda. The Coffee County Budget and Finance Committee voted last week to recommend a 27-cent property tax increase for all county residents. According to Budgets and Accounts Director Marianna Edinger, the increase equates to roughly $68 per year for a home valued at $100,000. There will be a Public Hearing at 5:00 p.m. before the full commission meeting.
A resolution under unfinished business will be discussed and possibly voted on to place a referendum on the November ballot concerning a motor vehicle tax or wheel tax. If approved voters would have the option of voting yes or no in November on the tax.
