Carbon County residents can expect to pay less on their county taxes in 2012.
During the county commissioners' meeting on Thursday, the board voted 2-1 to approve the 2012 budget with a one-mill tax decrease. As it stands, the tax rate for the county will be 5.893 mills. One mill generates $1,533,000.
That means that a homeowner with a $50,000 home assessed at $25,000 could expect to pay $147.33, $25 less than in 2011.
