Unicoi County Will Let Voters Decide On Wheel Tax
The Unicoi County Commission will let voters decide on a wheel tax. A vote of five to two approved the resolution to put the wheel tax referendum on the November ballot with Gene Wilson and Kenneth Garland providing the no votes with Doug Bowman and Bill Hensley missing the called Monday night meeting. With voters approval a 25-dollars wheel tax will be assessed on all registered vehicles in the county. They believe the wheel tax will benefit the county’s property owners by reducing their tax burden. A 25-dollar wheel tax on the 20-thousand plus vehicles registered in the county should generate about 450-thousand dollars and hopefully offset next year’s property tax rate by about 15 cents per $100-dollars of real property.
