Your taxes: Palm Beach County adopts budget, cuts tax rate by 4.6%
Palm Beach Post
County commissioners Tuesday cut the tax rate by 4.6%, enough to avoid an increase in county taxes next year for most residents whose homes are homesteaded. The only larger percentage cut in the past 31 years was during the Great Recession in 2008. The tax rate and the $1.3 billion budget were adopted following a public hearing. Even with the cut, county budget officials will have about $85 million in additional property tax revenue to fund county operations, which represents an increase of nearly 7%.
