Tulare County can expect an uptick in tax revenue with the increase of property value in the area over the last year.
According to Roland Hill, Assessor/Clerk-Recorder for the County of Tulare, overall property value went up by 4.1% since 2019 to $10.54 billion.
Counties collect tax revenue based on the assessment roll. Money goes towards schools, community colleges and cities, as well as social services and courts.
The Woodlake/Farmersville area had an especially significant increase, going up by 7.8% in secured property to a value of $67.7 million, but Dinuba and the Dinuba/Exeter areas were not far behind, each being brought up by 7.5%.
Not every city saw an uptick in overall value. The Lindsay/Porterville area saw its property value drop by 0.1%.
