Columbia City Council has first reading for tax ordinance

City will have compensating rate for 2017

By Ed Waggener

The Columbia City Council heard a first reading by Council Member Craig Dean of the tax ordinance setting the tax rate for 2017, which will be at the compensating rate, which amounts to $.259 on each $100 worth of lands, improvements, and personal property.

City Clerk Rhonda Loy said that the compensating rate is a rate at which the city will receive the same revenue, exclusive of additional property added to the rolls.

The ordinance which will become law following a second reading and approval of the city council, provides for a 2% discount for taxes paid on or before November 1, 2017, and all taxes not paid on or before January 3, 2018, will be delinquent and subject to a 10% penalty.
