Chattooga County Commissioner Jason Winters continues to make good on a campaign promise to implement and gradually increase the freeport tax exemption in Chattooga County.

The decision to implement freeport tax was not made by the Commissioner, but by Chattooga County voters several years ago.  However, the exemption was not implemented under previous administrations.

Winters announced at last night’s county commissioner’s meeting that he had signed a resolution that increases the freeport tax exemption to 40% in Chattooga County.

AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio will have the complete commissioner’s meeting on the air on Friday afternoon at 12:45 PM then again on Saturday at 10:15 AM.
