Buncombe County Taxpayers Get Ready For Lower Rates - And Higher Bills
Homeowners in Buncombe County are receiving their property tax bills, which arrive with this paradox – tax rates are going down, but the amount each homeowner must pay is almost universally going up. Asheville Citizen-Times reporter Emily Patrick joined BPR’s Matt Bush in studio to explain how that’s possible. She also touched on how taxes may end up increasing because of the brewery that did not relocate to Asheville aka Beer City U.S.A - Deschutes Brewery, which decided to build it's East Coast location in Roanoke, Virginia. It's scheduled to open in August of this year.
