Public hearing Tuesday on changes to excise tax ordinance

February 21, 2011

A public hearing on proposed changes to Washington County’s Building Excise Tax Ordinance is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to a county press release.

The proposed change is to remove a provision in the ordinance that calls for doubling of the excise tax rate for fast-growing subdivisions.

Currently, if building permits are issued for 25 homes in one fiscal year in a subdivision with school capacity or road capacity problems, subsequent permits issued that same fiscal year are charged double the excise tax.

The hearing will be in the commissioners’ meeting room on the second floor of the County Administration Building at 100 W. Washington St. in Hagerstown.
