Palm Beach County anticipates a property tax hike to cover its threadbare healthcare services. The county’s Health Care District expects to raise its property tax rate by 14.8 percent, meaning an increase of $1.1451 per $1,000 of taxable value, according to district CEO Dwight Chenette. The owner of a home worth $250,000, with a homestead exemption, will pay $229.02 to the special taxing district. About $137 of that homeowner’s tax bill will go to support health coverage programs, he said.
