Cocke County revenues
Members of the Cocke County Finance Committee were given an update Monday evening on the anticipated revenues from property taxes. Finance Manager Anne Bryant-Hurst said property taxes and in-lieu of taxes, are expected to total $595.3 million, with one cent on the tax rate bringing in $55,662. The manager told the committee she expects all but about six percent of the taxes will be paid. But the six percent likely will be further reduced because of a planned auction later this year of property on which delinquent taxes are owed. The committee is looking at a possible property tax increase to fund the 20127/18 budget, because county taxes have not been raised in nine years. Bryant-Hurst said a 40 cent tax increase would mean an increase of $100 in taxes on a residential property appraised at $100,000.
