Do you set the tax rate?

The Assessor of Property does not set the tax rate. That is done by the Washington County Commission and the Johnson City Commission. The rate is set by those elected bodies to pay for the programs and services their governments offer to citizens. When this office reappraises property, an owners’ tax bill could go up or down depending on the new value, but that is not the same as setting the tax rate.
