HOWARD COUNTY - On Monday, Howard County Commissioners announced a proposed tax rate for property owners.
The average appraisal of a home has gone up.
However, the proposed tax rate for the average home has gone down from 44 cents per $100 property value to 33 cents.
With the new proposal, an average home would now be valued at $57,000 with an estimated $188 County tax bill.
Commissioners will hold two public hearings on the proposed rate, one later this month and the other will be in September.
