Monroe County is now operating with projected total budget revenue of $35,586,077.00. (48.85 percent) or $17,384,586.00 of

The decision to not increase the ad valorem tax millage rate for fiscal year 2020 above the current fiscal year’s ad valorem tax millage rate means you will not pay more in ad valorem taxes on your home, automobile tag, utilities, business fixtures and equipment
and rental real property.
Monroe County also proposes to levy ad valorem taxes for the Monroe County Schools for fiscal year 2020 in the amount of
$4,723,864.00, representing an $8,203.00 revenue decrease and requiring a 1.58 mills decrease in ad valorem tax levy. The decision to decrease the ad valorem tax millage rate for fiscal year 2020 below the current fiscal year’s ad valorem tax millage rate

property.
Finally, Monroe County proposes to levy ad valorem taxes for the Nettleton Schools for fiscal year 2020 in the amount of
$920,008.72, representing a $36,736.25 revenue increase and requiring a 0.95 mill increase in ad valorem tax levy. The decision to
increase the ad valorem tax millage rate for fiscal year 2020 above the current fiscal year’s ad valorem tax millage rate means you
will pay more in ad valorem taxes on your home, automobile tag, utilities, business fixtures and equipment and rental real property.
