A new sales tax goes into effect April 1 in Catawba
The Catawba County Board of Commissioners’ finance and personnel
subcommittee approved a resolution of the tax Monday and will consider adopting
it November 19. Last week’s vote will be approved at today’s election
canvassing. Many voters hoped such an increase would help them avoid property
taxes. Commissioners have promised the increase will go towards restoring
school expenses and will keep property taxes at their current rate.
