Live in Culpeper County? Thinking about doing business there? Take note that tax increases are set to take effect there on July 1, 2012. Culpeper County and the Town of Culpeper have imposed new taxes on a number of folks, including new home buyers, according to this story.
In addition to a tax increase on new home buyers, the County and Town have also heaped new taxes on other land uses. Want to build a bank? It will cost you over $12,000 in new taxes according the County website.
Oh, and the other irony? You go to the County website, and right before the section on the new taxes they have imposed, there is a post about an affordable housing needs survey.
You really cannot make this stuff up.
