Williamsport will get less tax setoff money this year



WILLIAMSPORT - The Town of Williamsport will receive less property tax setoff money for fiscal 2001 than in the last fiscal year, according to Washington County Commissioner Gregory I. Snook.

Williamsport was allocated $48,275 for fiscal 2001 compared to $53,061 for fiscal 2000, said Snook. The county will deduct $16,563.37 from Williamsport's tax setoff to pay off a town utility debt, he said.

The commissioners attributed the tax setoff decrease to growth in taxable income and the tax base in unincorporated areas of Washington County.

The setoff amount is based on the town's population of 2,103.
