Commissioners Adopt Budget; Taxes Hold Steady

January 4th, 2022 Comments off

Real estate taxes in Potter County will remain at their current rate for a fourth straight year. In addition, Commissioners Nancy Grupp, Barry Hayman and Paul Heimel have decided not to collect the $5.00 per-capita tax that many other counties levy. Actions were finalized at the commissioners’ year-end meeting on Dec. 30. Real estate taxes will be 18.5 mills. A mill is one-tenth of one percent, levied against a property’s assessed value. Because state law prohibits county governments from levying an income tax, property owners bear the heaviest tax burden. This year’s budget calls for nearly $11.3 million in spending.
