Columbia County to keep its almost 30-year-old tax hike

May 30, 2023 1:03 am

Jammel Cutler reports for Columbia-Greene Media that the Columbia County Board of Supervisors wants to extend a tax hike, asking the state Legislature to keep giving an extra 1 percent to the county and keep the county sales tax rate at 4 percent. Columbia County Board of Supervisors Chair Matt Murell, a Republican from Stockport, explained that, “The county originally passed this in 1995, and every two years we have to renew it.... and that’s what we’re doing.... The tax percentage will stay the same. It’s not an increase. We currently get 4 percent. If we didn’t do this 1 percent increase we will be at 3 percent.” Read more about this story at HudsonValley360.com.
