There are other agencies taking increases but they are small for the most part. No matter what they say about keeping taxes in check for us taxpayers these are the numbers at this point in time. Read their collective lips...they are going to take all they can get from us except for the County Taxes.
Canyon County tax bite is the only one to show a decrease and any belt tightening. The Commishes have acted in good faith with the taxpayers suffering in this economy.
Final note: You are going to receive you 2010 tax assessment notices in the mail within the next few days. Most of you will see a dramatic drop in the value of your property. This does not translate to a lower property tax. It looks from the above you will see a tax increase if you live in an incorporated city in Canyon County.
