Last week, the Jackson County Assessor warned it’s possible that property values could jump 30% this year.

Property owners should receive notices by mid-April.

While the notice comes from the Jackson County Assessor’s office, it says the majority of the tax money collected goes to other services.

The office says Jackson County receives about 7 cents of every of tax dollar, while the remaining 93 cents of every tax dollar go to the taxing authorities, like school boards, fire districts, water districts, cities, and other services funded by taxes.
