Public Comment On Proposed Madison County Tax Increases

Public comment will be taken on two proposed increases to the Madison County local option income tax. The Herald Bulletin reports The Madison County Council voted last month to table a proposal to increase the local option income tax by .5% to a possible rate of 2.25% starting in 2022 and a .2% increase in the income tax that would generate approximately $5.4 million on an annual basis to pay for the construction of a new jail.
