The financial blueprint for Miller County is set, for the most part, following a tax levy hearing conducted this week in Tuscumbia. County Clerk Clinton Jenkins presented the commission with proposed tax rates based on the county’s assessed valuation for General Revenue and Roads and Bridges.
Overall assessed valuation for General Revenue…comprised of real property, personal property and state assessed railroad and utilities…came in a little over $3-million higher than 2015, while assessed valuation for Roads and Bridges came in about two-and-a-half million higher. The county tax rate, itself, was set at point-zero-4-6-5 which is actually a reduction due to OVER-COLLECTION in 2013. TIF values and other entities…such as school districts and fire districts…will be added and appear on individual tax statements when they are sent out to Miller County residents in October and November.
