AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio has learned that Chattooga County Commissioner Jason Winters did sign a resolution on Friday of last week implementing Freeport Tax in Chattooga County. Several years ago voters in Chattooga County voted for the Freeport Tax which helps manufacturers with inventory taxes on goods in their warehouses that have not been sold. The resolution signed by Commissioner Winters implements a 20% Freeport Tax for the county. Winters campaigned heavily in the primary and general election on the Freeport Tax issue, citing the Freeport Tax as necessary to attract future manufacturing development to the county. Commissioner Winters told AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio on Monday that the Freeport exemption would be phased in over a period of 4 years at 20% for each of the first three years, and 40% in the fourth year.
