Chattooga County’s largest employer is going to see a big hike in their taxes for the upcoming year. Estimates are that Mt. Vernon Mills in Trion will wind up paying an extra $172,000 in property taxes according to the 2008 Chattooga County Tax Digest records. The Town of Trion met earlier this week to discuss the upcoming year’s property taxes. Some council members are reportedly saying the tax increase for Mt. Vernon is due to the County Assessors Office assesment of Mt. Vernon’s property.
