Some Jackson County home owners may see a reduction in their property taxes this year.

It could be a positive effect of a failing housing market.

Since 2007, officials say properties values within Jackson County have declined by 34%.

As a resultĀ 8 of theĀ 11 cities within the county will see lower property taxes.

Some 39% of home owners will see reductions this year alone.

The down side, the money collected from these taxes goes toward funding for schools, cities, and county services.
