County Budgets

York County's 2018 budget was approved by York County Commissioners Susan Byrnes, Doug Hoke and Chris Reilly at their regularly scheduled meeting on Dec. 6, 2017.

The plan does not increase county-levied property taxes, keeping the millage rate at 5.8. This comes after two consecutive years of tax increases.

Owners of a property assessed at $131,705 — the county average — will have an annual county real estate tax of around $762 annually.

The $600.7 million budget includes general fund expenses of $249.65 million, an increase from the 2017 budget.
