The plan calls for higher tax rates for the new Residential A tax classification made up of those with homes valued at $1 million or more, as well as for hotels and resorts.

Those homeowners who live in their houses and receive a homeowner's exemption, would not see an increase in rates, although they may see higher higher tax bills if their property values have risen.
