Where Does The Property Tax Revenue Go?
The local school boards, county and city councils and special-purpose districts determine how much money must be collected to fund their budgets and the tax rate necessary to meet those budgets. For many governments, property taxes make up only a portion of the total amount of revenue needs to fund the budget. Fees and other sources of income make up the remainder. Just because collecting the tax is a county function does not mean that all the taxes collected are the responsibility of the county. In fact, only one fifth (1/5) of the typical tax bill in Spartanburg pays for county operation costs. The rest of the revenue is distributed to the 72 other local government entities whose budgets rely on property taxes.
