One way or the other, homeowners may wind up paying higher property taxes because of the state’s fiscal crisis.
Gov. Sonny Perdue late last week placed a hold on the $428 million homeowners tax relief grant program and cut spending for schools and other programs.
The two moves were part of the plan Perdue and legislative leaders developed to deal with a possible $1.6 billion shortfall brought on by the slow economy.
If the economy picks up, some of the cuts may not be needed.
