Property taxes up, but lower than predicted
By now, all Washington County taxpayers have received their tax statements.
And some may have been pleased with the 0.2 percent reduction from the proposed amount sent last fall.
In total, Washington County billed $374.8 million, an increase of 1.5 percent over 2012.
The 2012 amount of $369.3 million was a 3.7 percent jump from the year before, according to data released by the Department of Property Records and Taxpayer Services.
