A Record on Property Tax Rates

 

2003 – 11.7 cents - - - - - - - 2017 – 11.7 cents

 

I am proud that we have maintained the property tax rate at 11.7 cents for the years that I have served as your Judge/Executive.  I am even prouder of the fact that we have run county government without an insurance premium or occupational tax. Each of our surrounding counties have at least one of these taxes.

Carroll - 1% Occupational tax with a $5,000 exemption

Franklin – 1% Occupational tax, 6% Insurance Premium Tax

Oldham – 10% Insurance Premium Tax

Owen – 7.5% Insurance Premium Tax
