Jackson County property taxpayers may want to start setting aside a little extra money to have on hand in December.
The Jackson County Board of Commissioners is considering a proposal to hike property taxes this year by 1-mill, or 10 percent.
If approved, the tax hike will generate about $2 million in new revenue for the county. Half of that will go toward funding the county’s ballooning debt service payments, officials said last week.
The BOC will hold public hearings on the proposed tax increase at 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 13, and at 6 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 20, at the Jackson County Courthouse in the Jury Assembly Room, 5000 Jackson Parkway, Jefferson.
