Louise Dustrude: San Juan County has lowest property tax rate in the state

  • Written by Louise Dustrude

Dear Editor:

“Taxes are the price we pay for civilization. I like to pay taxes. With them I buy civilization.”  —Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

Here in San Juan County our taxes pay for roads, police and fire, emergency medical services, the county government, the public schools, the public library, and more.

Yet with all these benefits San Juan County has the lowest property tax rate in the state.

A bargain indeed.
