The Town personal property tax rate is 40 cents per $100 of assessed value. This is in addition to Franklin County taxes. 

Utility Costs

Our utility rates are based on advice of UNC’s Environmental Finance Center: “smaller utilities should lean towards higher base charges,” to receive steady revenue to pay debt and manage fixed costs, insuring against drought or the loss of a business.

Business: Commercial/Manufacturing Utility Rates

Boones Mill does not segregate business or charge different fees based on use. Most households have small meters and supply lines. A business using a household sized line will pay the same rates. Higher base fees only apply to customers with larger meters and lines. Each such metered service connection will have a separate base service fee. These rates and fees include fire protection supply systems. The usage rate is the same regardless of business size. We believe this is the most fair system for all.
