Final public hearing for Pasco County property tax rate set for Tuesday

NEW PORT RICHEY — Pasco residents will get one last shot at weighing in on the proposed 2013-14 county budget, which includes a proposed 7.8 percent increase in the overall property tax rate.

The new rate would mean the owner of a house valued at $150,000 with a $50,000 homestead exemption would pay about $33 more than last year. This does not include taxes paid to the school board, cities, or special taxing authorities such as community development districts.

Pasco County commissioners are expected to vote on the final budget and tax rate.

The public hearing is set for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the West Pasco Government Center in New Port Richey. Residents also may follow the upcoming budget meetings and workshops online at pascocountyfl.net and on Pasco County Government TV, Brighthouse 622 or Verizon 42.
