Towns learn of tax rebates



SHARPSBURG - The Washington County Commissioners met with council members from Sharpsburg and Keedysville Thursday to announce the tax setoff rebates for the towns.

Commissioners President Greg Snook said Sharpsburg will receive $4,155 and Keedysville will get $2,926.

Both towns received the money for their parks and will spend it on police protection for the town. Sharpsburg and Keedysville share the cost of a Washington County resident deputy who patrols both towns.

The town's allocation was based on their populations of 659 in Sharpsburg and 464 in Keedysville.

Last year Sharpsburg received $4,627 and Keedysville got $3,258.

The city and towns are receiving a smaller tax setoff this year because most growth of taxable income and the tax base occurred in unincorporated areas of Washington County.
