ABILENE, Texas -

If you're a homeowner in Taylor County your property taxes are probably going up.

Taylor County commissioners gave preliminary approval Tuesday to a tax rate that will be a little more than 2-cents higher than the current rate.

The rate would be 50.47-cents per $100 valuation beginning with the new fiscal year which starts October 1st.

Two public hearing will be held on the budget and the tax rate, one on September 3 and a second on September 10.

Commissioners will give their final approval to the budget after that.
