Commissioners Approve 2023 Operating Budget

January 1st, 2023

Real estate taxes in Potter County will remain at their current rate for a fifth straight year in 2023. 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. 22. A copy of the final 2023 operating budget is available for public review at the commissioners administrative office in the Gunzburger Building. Under the spending plan, real estate taxes will remain at 18.5 mills. A mill is one-tenth of one percent, levied against a property‚Äôs assessed value. Because state law prohibits county governments from levying an income tax, property owners bear the heaviest tax burden.
