PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, VIRGINIA...The Board of County Supervisors adopted its Fiscal 2017 Budget with a flat real estate tax rate of $1.122 per $100 of assessed value. The Board maintained its commitment to the Prince William County Public School System by transferring 57.23% ($526 million) of the General Fund revenues.
“This budget demonstrates our commitment to the taxpayers of Prince William County,” said Chairman Corey Stewart. “We were able to keep our real estate tax bills the lowest in Northern Virginia. We were able to make significant investments in public safety. Yet, we also had to eliminate some programs and services that sound great, but that we still do not have sufficient evidence of their value at this time. This was a challenging process, but we came together through collaboration to provide a lean budget that meets the needs of the community.”
