Jefferson County lowers property taxes

WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - Jefferson County will spend more of its savings in order to bring property taxes down.
In October, a proposed budget lowered the tax rate to $7.11 cents per $1,000 of assessed value.
Lawmakers, though, wanted to do more and will use county savings to bring that tax rate down to $6.86 cents per $1,000 of assessed value.
That’s a 57-cent drop from the rate property owners pay today.
