Fire tax rates
Editor, the Journal,
Hi, Mason County Dist 17 residents,
I just wanted to provide some information on your tax rates and Brinnon Fire District 4 tax rates. These can be found by going to the assessors’ websites for Mason County and Jefferson counties. These are rates per $1,000 of assessed value:
Mason County District 17 EMS: $0.3670 Fire: $0.2499; Brinnon Jefferson County District 4 EMS: $0.3633 Fire: $0.9391 Fire bond (2019): $0.3384. That is a difference of $1.03 per thousand dollars assessed.
Just thought you should have that information.
