2020 Tax Rates


Tax rates are expressed in rate per $100 of assessed value.  Example:  A property valued at $100,000 with a combined tax rate of $0.798 would receive a tax bill of $798.00 (plus any associated solid waste fee(s) if applicable).

The County collects taxes for the Town of Walstonburg and their municipal taxes will appear on the County tax bill.  For other towns, you will receive separate bills from the County and from the Town.  Sticker fees are an additional per car fee adopted by many municipalities.

Solid Waste Fees

A Solid Waste Fee is assessed on each residence in the County.  The standard Solid Waste Fee is $84.00/year.  Half of this rate is for the purpose of maintaining Solid Waste & Recycling Convenience Sites across the County.

County residences with contracts with private companies for garbage pickup AND residences assessed with Municipal Taxes (and receiving Municipal garbage collection) qualify for a reduced solid waste fee of $42.00/year.  This other half of the fee is for the purpose of maintaining the County Landfill.
