Fort Dodge Residents Could See Slight Decrease in Property Taxes
Fort Dodge residents could see the property tax rate drop slightly under a proposal under consideration. Under the proposal, the tax rate would be set at $20.47 per $1,000 of taxable value, down from the current rate of $20.82 per $1,000 of taxable value. Property taxes help fund several different areas, including the city's general fund, transit service, and emergency management. The owner of a median value home of $85,000 can expect to pay about $783 in property tax.
