Jackson County homeowners may see an increase in property taxes this year. Normally, residents can expect 3 percent on their property value, but due to recent improvements in the housing market, some property owners could see up to 8 percent this year.
Property tax statements have been mailed out. To qualify for a 3 percent reduction, you must apply before November 15.
You can also contest your tax rate, you must submit the request to the Board of Property Tax Appeals at the Jackson County Clerk's Office by December 31.
