IIRC that legislation was passed some time ago and Counties have the option of participating or not?
Paid the County/Twp. real estate tax bill on my cabin recently. That cabin bill is almost $100 higher than the County/Twp. RE bill we pay here at home in Cumberland Co.
Difference: The population of Tioga Co. is a fraction of the population here at home - so far more people to pay those taxes. But the services rendered for those taxes here at home, are also far more than what we get in Tioga County, near's I can see?
Property assessments for the cabin and our home, are nearly identical in assessed valuation, btw. At least the school RE taxes are a bit less on the cabin, but they keep going up over the past ten years.
A few years ago the Northern Tioga SD haggled for about six months whether to increase school taxes by 4 mils or 6 mils. Come fall, they "compromised" and raised 'em 7 mils.
They just raised 'em again this year.
