Danville sets tax rates
Danville property tax rates were set at $0.131 per $100 of assessed value. City Commissioners approved the rates Wednesday, which are lower than last fiscal year's but are expected to bring in a 4 percent revenue increase for the city. Commissioners expect to collect $1.1 million this fiscal year.
The rate last year was $0.139 per $100 assessed value.
The tangible rate will stay the same at $0.188 per $100 of assessed value.
