Although no formal decision on a tax rate has been made, the Anderson County School Board will consider a maximum increase in its tax rate when it meets Aug. 31, according to a legal notice issued in last week’s paper.
If the board opts to increase its revenue a full 4 percent, the rate property owners pay would increase 3.75 percent, going from $5.86 per $1,000 in assessed value to $6.08.
The meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at the district office on U.S. 127 near Emma B. Ward Elementary School.
