Wilson County residents will continue to pay an ad valorem tax rate of 45.33 cents per $100 of assessed property value, following a unanimous vote by the Wilson County Commissioners Court during an Oct. 4 special meeting.
While the fiscal year 2013 rate is the same as the one paid last year, it could mean an increased tax bill for some. This is because the Wilson County Appraisal District certified the average value of a residence in the county at $142,818, meaning the average tax bill would be $647.39. This is $8.26, or approximately 1.3 percent, higher than last year’s average tax bill of $639.13.
The rate -- of which 1.82 cents is included for interest and sinking, or debt service, according to Interim County Auditor Verna Gorzell -- will support a total budget of $15,883,193. The commissioners adopted the budget Sept. 17.
Also during their Oct. 4 meeting, the commissioners approved the revenue increase of $509,432, which will result from the adopted tax rate.
Both votes during the meeting followed a public hearing. Like the tax-rate hearings held Sept. 26 and Oct. 1, no one from the audience rose to speak. In addition to Gorzell and elected officials, the only ones in attendance Oct. 4 were this reporter and county residents Ralph Gerhardt and Richard “Dickie” Jackson.
***In attendance: Wilson County Judge Marvin Quinney and commissioners Albert Gamez Jr., Paul Pfeil, Ricky Morales, and Larry Wiley; Wilson County Sheriff Joe D. Tackitt Jr., Interim County Auditor Verna Gorzell, and County Clerk Eva Martinez.
