IF YOU HAD ANY DOUBT BEFORE THAT YOU PAY HIGH PROPERTY TAXES IN JASPER COUNTY, HERE’S SOME MORE PROOF THAT YOU DO

June 12, 2015

 Citizens all over are fighting to keep their property taxes from going up again this year. However, elected officials don’t seem to care about that after they are elected. They all have big plans, bigger budgets, and want more stuff. Here’s how Jasper County compares to counties around us and its ranking in the State—

Jasper Tax Rate

Keeping the millage rate the same as last year, increases property taxes by about $300,000 for the county and another $300,000 for the school system. We all know there is plenty of waste that can be cut.

You still have an opportunity to call your Commissioner—all commissioners—and ask them to cut the budget and lower the millage rate. Or come to one or both of the public hearings on the budget Monday, June 15 at 9:00am and/or 6:00pm.

Thank you to contacts in Newton County for providing this information and chart.

Citizens, be informed and stay informed! Only by being informed can the citizens understand what is being done and talked about, and then press our officials to make good decisions for everyone in Jasper County. That is our goal with the Taxdogs blog.

    Don’t count on it Dewey, Kathy Mudd only reports what will not make her biggest advertisers (who are the Monticelloites that really run this county) mad.

    Is this going to be published in the Monticello News?  How about some other publications? Thanks for providing this !

      How can Jasper County support the higher tax rate, when the roads are bad, our bridges are bad, county not taking care of the right aways on our roads, but yet increase our taxes on our property. Who would want to buy a home in Jasper County after hearing about the tax rate they would have to pay?

      Several citizens I have talked to, are thinking of moving out of the county.

        Strategic Planning/Smart Growth is code for PPP (Pilfering the Public’s Pockets)
        As long as the “divinely chosen denomination” of avarice driven opportunists have control over the purse strings of Jasper County , the PPP scams will continues and the taxes will will rise in accordance.Bet on it.
