Goethe By FRANK SOPUCH A slight decrease in 1983 taxes could be on tap for Henderson Countians provided their property values have not increased during the past year. The Henderson County Com- missioners Court Monday morning unanimously adopted a 1983 tax rate of 18.73 cents (per $100 valuation), a .14 cent decrease from last year's rate of 18.87 cents. Precinct 4 Commissioner Lelland Tarrant was absent from the meeting due to an unexpected deah in the family, according to County Judge Winston Reagan. County tax assessor/collector Betty Smith told the court Monday the tax rate decrease is the result of an estimated one percent hike in the 1983 county roll of taxable values. The new tax rate is a 7.90 increase in the effective tax rate of 17.35 cents. The effective rate is calculated to generate the same amount of revenues from the new tax roll as levied the previous year. State law allows 10 percent or more of the electorate to petition for a rollback election should a taxing entity adopt more than an eight percent increase of the effective tax rate. At an earlier public hearing Judge Reagan and County Auditor Thomas Simmons recommended the com- missioners adopt the new tax rate "to maintain the county and provide the services expected of us." (Judge Reagan) The new tax rate is expected to generate approximately $69,000 more tax revenue than was levied last year due to the increase in the county tax roll.
