Bonita Springs Property Tax Rate to Remain Unchanged
Posted by Benjamin Dona on Tuesday, October 6th, 2009 at 3:25pm.
The Bonita Springs City Council has agreed to keep its tax rate the same as last year. The 2009 tax rate will be 82.73 cents per $1,000 of assessed value. That's great news for Bonita Springs homeowners, who will likely see a 17% decrease in their property taxes.
When you add in the fact that the Lee County Property Tax Rates are also going to remain unchanged, 2009 is going to bring a welcome relief to area residents stung by recent years rising real estate taxes.
In addition, both the City Council and the County Commissioners reduced spending accordingly in order to make up for the short fall in tax revenues. Fortunately, both groups were able to focus their cuts on areas that will not decrease services or have a major impact on residents in general.
