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.
