Safety Harbor taxes likely to stay the same, even with rate hike

Safety Harbor

Taxes likely to stay same, even with rate hike

At a meeting Monday night, the Safety Harbor City Commission proposed a property tax rate of 3.06 for the upcoming fiscal year, an increase over the 2.78 rate for 2008-09. But residents' property taxes should remain about the same because the economic downturn has sent most property values down. The proposed tax rate means residents will pay $3.06 for every $1,000 of taxable value on their property.
