Williamson County Commissioners Approve a Proposed a Tax Rate Showing a Decrease from 2007

In commissioner’s court on Tuesday, county commissioners approved an effective tax rate of 46 cents as compared to 2007 which was at 48 cents.

The county’s tax auditor, David Flores, submitted his report to commissioners.

“Our tax rate which we tax on presently which is .489 to .468 per 100 dollar value, meaning we would reduce it by basically 2 cents.” The county tax auditor, David Flores said.

He attributes the decrease to the county growth and improvements. “Williamson County is growing. We grew our tax base by 11.7 percent meaning that our taxable values are higher, meaning we can reduce the tax rate.” He stated.

County commissioners will consider the proposed rate when they adopt the budget August 19th.
