A property tax increase has been proposed in Cache County and at Tuesday’s meeting of the county council, a public hearing on that issue will be held. The hearing will start at around 6 p.m.
If approved, the tax on a residence valued at $201,181 would increase from $211.34 per year to $224.52, which is $13.18 per year.
The Cache County tax on a $201,181 business would go from $384.26 to $408.22, or $23.96 per year.
If the proposed budget is approved, Cache County would increase its property tax budgeted revenue by 6.24 percent above last year’s property tax revenue, excluding new growth.
Anyone interested is invited to attend the public hearing where citizens will be allowed to comment on the issue. The council will not make a decision on the proposed tax hike until a later meeting.
