Leesburg - - Despite recent increases in property values, homeowners in Lee County may not have to worry about paying too much extra in taxes.

Both the Lee County Commission and the Lee County School Board are expected to adopt lower millage rates than last year. If that happens, it will help offset the increases homeowners would be paying due to higher assessments this year.

"The state mandates you roll back so far. There's a formula that's calculated through the department of revenue that they have to roll back certain amount or either have 3 public hearings to justify why they didn't roll back as far as the state requirement was," says Tax Commissioner Betty Johnson.

If the proposed commission and school board millage rates are adopted, taxes would equal to $1100 dollars on a $100,000 home.

The School board will adopt it's millage next Thursday. The Commission will adopt its millage rate next Friday.
