Property taxes expected to go down thanks to Fruitland’s newly approved budget
FRUITLAND, Md. – In, Fruitland, residents are praising the city’s council efforts to lower property taxes after passing their 2019- 2020 budget. City officials announced the news after holding a public hearing earlier this week. They say with the exception of the property tax rate, all rates and utility fees including sanitation fees remained the same for the seventh year in the row. Officials say property taxes will be going down by nearly 1.3%, and while it’s not a huge decrease, residents in the area say it’s a start.
“Every little bit is a help. At this day in time with inflation and everything else is going up all around us and Fruitland being as it is, a nice quiet town, it is well welcomed by all the individual property owners and renters alike,” said resident Ken Taylor.
In an effort to thank those who’ve served our country, city officials also made room in the budget to double veteran’s tax rebate.
