From the Fauquier Times-Democrat:
"County Administrator Paul McCulla’s fiscal 2009 spending plan calls for a 17-cent real estate tax rate hike.(In case you were wondering "where is that?"):
If Fauquier’s board of supervisors approve McCulla’s $233.4 budget proposal, the tax bill for homeowners would jump 26 percent.
The commissioner of revenue put the value of a "typical" Fauquier home at $417,000.
At the existing real estate tax rate of 64.5 cents per $100 assessed value, such homeowners pay the county $2,689.
Under McCulla’s proposed 81.5-cent rate, they would pay $708 more in real estate taxes, or a total of $3,398."
