    Real estate taxes may be going up in Fairfax County.

    Tuesday, the Board of Supervisors voted 6-3 to approve the advertising of a real estate tax rate for 2013 of $1.08 per every $100 of assessed home value.

    The rate for this year is $1.07.

    The increase would work out to about $45 dollars a year on average for homeowners.  It would add almost $20-million to the Fairfax County coffers.

    But it's not a done deal. The board has the option of adopting a budget without changing the current rate.

    Residents will also get to weigh in. A hearing on the tax rate will be held April 10.
