NOTICE OF PROPOSED HEARING ON REAL PROPERTY TAX EQUALIZED
The County of Culpeper proposes to equalize property tax levies.
1. Assessment Increase: Total assessed value of real property, excluding additional
assessments due to new construction or improvements to property, increased from last year’s
total assessed value of real property by eight (8.20) percent.
2. Decreased Rate Necessary to Offset Increased Assessment: The current tax rates are $.66
per $100 of assessed value for General Fund tax rate and $.07 per $100 assessed value for the
Fire & Rescue tax rate. The tax rate, which would levy the same amount of real estate tax as
last year, when multiplied by the new total assessed value of real estate, would be $.61 per
$100 of assessed value for General Fund tax rate and $.06 per $100 assessed value for the Fire
& Rescue tax rate. This rate will be known as the “lowered tax rate.”
