El Paso County Commissioners accepted the 2014 tax rates Monday, which will now need to go to public hearings.

The current tax rate sits at $.43 cents per 100 dollar valuation.

After public input, commissioners could vote to adopt a rate anywhere from nearly $.45 for the effective tax rate, to nearly $.49 cents in the rollback tax rate. That rate is the highest possible without needing voter approval.

That could mean higher taxes between $15 and $55 for a home valued at $100,000.

The tax rates will be published in local newspapers this week...

The dates for public hearing should be announced in the coming week.
