Prince William County’s economy remained strong

December of 2010 brought in the strongest month of sales tax collection in 19 years, which was a great way to start off 2011. Add to that the planned five-year savings of some $3.5 estimated by the Prince William County information technology department specialists, and the county was off to a booming start to the new year. Then, the county’s board of supervisors advertised a tax rate of $1.213 per $100 of assessed value, which was down from the previous rate of $1.236. The approved tax rate was $1.204.
