Wheel Tax On County Commission Agenda

WHEEL TAX 2A possible wheel tax is back on the agenda for Coffee County Commissioners to consider at its next meeting on June 24. The Coffee County Legislative Committee voted unanimously Monday to allow commissioners to vote to put the choice of a $50 wheel tax on the November ballot.
A similar resolution failed by one vote in May, which would have placed the wheel tax question on the August ballot. The resolution requires 11 “yes” votes for passage, regardless of how many of the 21 commissioners vote on the issue.
If this vote fails on the part of the commissioners or by the voters, property owners will be looking at tax increase of around 33-cents which turns out to be $83 per year on a home valued at $100,000.
