Supervisors’ proposed budget could mean higher taxes
Published: August 28,2012
NATCHEZ — If the Adams County Board of Supervisors approves its proposed budget for fiscal year 2013, taxpayers could see their taxes go up ever so slightly.
While the budget currently being considered by the supervisors kept the county millage for 2012-2013 at the same rate as the current year, the Natchez-Adams County School District’s requested millage increased.
For a homeowner with property valued at $100,000, County Administrator Joe Murray tells the Natchez Democrat would mean an increase of approximately $15 annually in their tax bills.
If that homeowner claims homestead exemption on the $100,000 property, Murray says that increase will be $4.
Supervisors president Darryl Grennell said the board has, in the past, absorbed the cost of the school district’s millage increases, but he could not support doing so again.
