More than half of the Mecklenburg households facing higher taxes under County Manager Harry Jones' recommended 2011-12 budget would see their bills increase by up to 20 percent, newly-released figures show.
Four percent could see their tax bills more than double, the county analysis shows. See the chart by clicking here.

Jones' budget proposes a tax rate of 82.49 cents per $100 of assessed value. That's just over a penny less than the current rate, but would be applied to the new -- and in many cases, higher -- property tax values mailed earlier this year.
Mecklenburg officials previously said 185,127 households, or about 57 percent in the county, would pay more under Jones' proposal.
Of those, about 57 percent, or 105,178 households, would see their bills increase by up to 19.99 percent, according to information sent to county commissioners on Monday.
Another 30,329 households would see their bills increase between 20- and 20.99 percent.
Meanwhile, 4.1 percent could see their bills go up by more than 100 percent. -- APRIL BETHEA
