San Juan County takes close look at tax rates

San Juan County taxpayers may find some relief in their tax bill according to preliminary discussions of San Juan County Commissioners regarding the recently released state certified tax rate.

County Clerk Norman Johnson presented the certified tax rate to the San Juan County Commission at their June 11 meeting.

Johnson said that with increased valuation and new growth in the county, the certified tax rate has dropped by two percent from the previous year. If it is accepted by the commission, it will bring approximately $275,000 in additional revenue to the county due to new growth. San Juan Record
