Alexandria City Manager Mark B. Jinks tonight proposed a $712.5 million fiscal year 2018 General Fund Operating Budget, a 3.5% increase over this year’s budget. He also proposed a $2 billion ten-year Capital Improvement Program Budget, a 20% increase over City Council’s currently approved CIP. The proposed balanced budget includes a proposed 2.7-cent real estate tax rate increase, which would bring Alexandria’s real estate tax rate to $1.10 per $100 of assessed value.
The 2.07% or $1.1 billion increase in Alexandria’s real property tax base is the lowest since the recession of 2009-2010 and the third worst performance since 1996. The residential property tax base increased by 1.75% or $379.8 million; the commercial property tax base increased by 2.51% or $398.8 million; and the non-locally assessed tax base increased by 2.24% or $13.4 million.
