The reassessment is only part of the issue. The millage rate is the real culprit. The new taxes on our house are three times higher than they were last year. The new assessed value of our home is less than twice what it was before. Focusing only on the assessed value deals with only one part of the problem.

Newberry County taxes are now higher than Lexington County...but our schools are worse!
What are the 1 cent sales tax increases used for in Newberry? Building and improvement projects?? Why are we spending money for ANOTHER building for the Sheriff’s Department headquarters? The new building was only used for a few months. County taxpayers paid for a useable building; the builder should foot the bill and reimburse the county. Millage rates should be reviewed.

I always thought Florida had the highest taxes, BUT NO - now it's Newberry County, SC. Well, Mr Hawkins enjoy you time in office, because you won't be there the next time around, and neither will all the others. I moved here from a city in Florida with services galor, far more than little old Newberry county, and my taxes here are higher on a cheaper home than they were in the heavily taxed (property) city-county with much more expensive home. Not to mention that Newberry county doesn't even have one tenth the services. Where is all the money going? That should be the question as these folks are drummed out of office before the next ones get in. I know, "if you don't like it go back to Florida." Well, I know one thing, if I had known how the politicians operate here I would not have moved here, and you can expect the same from other folks moving here. You want to stop the growth of Newberry county, you just did it! I would not recommend this county to anyone based on the way this has gone down with NO care or concern for the impact it would have on people. "Just take it or leave it" is your attitude Mr. Hawkins. Well, next time around it going to be leave it (your name off the council).

Newberry county is going to price me to sell out and move back to Union, SC. I can not afford to live in Newberry County on retirement wages.

I think we should start a recall on all the council members who voted for the tax increase. They can not continue to waste money and expect us to pay for it.

Man you guys scared me away. We were looking to re-locate to SC. We were looking at a nice property in Newberry Co. but No way.
I feel bad for you guys. Good luck with the recall.
