The Dawson County Board of Commissioners last week voted to adopt the county’s 2017 millage rate at 8.138 mills, the same rate the county has held since 2004. Though the board did not vote to raise the millage rate, property owners may still see a tax increase over last year due to increases in property values. Leaving the rate unchanged at 8.138 increases the property taxes the county will levy this year by 4.45 percent over the rollback rate. With the calculated rollback rate of 7.791, if the board had decided to adopt the rollback rate, the county would have collected the same amount of property taxes as it did last year.
