Tax Commissioner advises Rotarians



Wilkes County Tax Commissioner Lisa Dozier, an eight-year Air Force veteran, presented a broad look at her activities as she spoke to the Washington Rotary Club. She was careful to note where individuals have responsibilities to ensure their taxes are paid as well as visiting with her staff to be certain their pending and annual taxes are correctly calculated with any deductions like homestead exemption. Some 97 percent of taxable properties within the county are covered. The remaining three percent don’t pay taxes and some are of questionable ownership. She also explained some of the rules and laws governing land use covenants. Bob Johnston was the program host.
