But you’ll have to wait until you get your tax bill this spring to find out whether you’ll actually pay less this year.

Tax rates dropped for most of the county, except in a few areas of White River, Pleasant and Clark townships due to increases in tax rates for Clark-Pleasant Community School Corp. and the Bargersville Fire Protection District.
