New County Budget – Higher Taxes and Spending

Thanks to Supervisor Vega for flagging this update on the county budget.

On April 27th, the Prince William Board of County Supervisors passed their $1.34 billion FY2022 budget, which included a $62.8 million dollar spending increase over last year and an average increase in residential tax bills of $286 per home. The $286 average increase is the largest increase in residential tax bills in the county’s history.

Although the Board did lower the real state rate by a penny, which Supervisor Vega supported during markup, she could not vote for the overall increase at a time when many county families are still struggling to get on their feet.
