More bad news on the way for not only Cincinnatians but also Hamilton County Residents. While Hamilton County Commishioners are celebrating reaching a deal on the stadium fund, taxpayers won’t be happy about the details. In a two to one vote, commisioners voted to increase property taxes for next year. Greg Hartmann and David Pepper voted in favor of the increase while Todd Portune voted against it.
So what will you have to pay next year? If you are an owner of a $100,000 home, you will have to pay $42.94 more. If you are an owner of a $200,000 home, you will have to pay $86 more. The Reds and the Bengals will also have to chip in too. The Reds will have to pay $2.2 million while the Bengals have to pay $7.4 million.
Check out the video below to hear the reaction of Todd Portune, and hear why he prefered the sales tax increase over the property tax increase.
