The Jacksonville City Council voted 12-4 on July 27 to keep Duval County’s property tax millage tax rate unchanged for another year despite some members calling for it to be reduced.

WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record reports the rate in Mayor Lenny Curry’s proposed $1.41 billion 2021-22 fiscal year city operating budget will remain at $11.4419 per $1,000 of taxable property value.

The Council set the tax rate for the Beaches at $8.1512 per $1,000 of taxable value and the city of Baldwin at $9.6312 per $1,000 of taxable value.

All seven of Curry’s proposed budgets since 2015 have kept the rate flat.

Although the millage rate is stable, property owners could see an increase in their bills because of increasing property values. Read the rest of this story at JaxDailyRecord.com.
