The tax commissioner’s office is correcting a millage rate mistake mailed to residents on October 15th.
Lori Andrews, Monroe County’s tax commissioner, said in a statement:
"An error was made in the calculation and printing of the 2015 Tax Bills that show the County MO at 10.831 with a sale tax rollback at 2.261 which was incorrect, the corrected tax bills will show County M&O at 13.816 and a sales tax rollback at 2.985."
"We apologize for any inconvenience this error may have caused the citizens of our county. My office is dedicated to sending an accurate bill as soon as possible."
The office is working to get the corrected bills out by the end of the month. Payments will be due 60 days from the date they’re sent out.
Residents can pay their bills by mail or in person at 38 West Main Street in Forsyth Monday through Friday between 7:30 a.m. and 5 p.m.
