BOC advertises for rollback millage rate increase

News

CLEVELAND, Ga. – The White County Board of Commissioners announced Monday it intends to increase the 2018 property taxes by 1.516 mils or 15.57 percent above the rollback millage rate to 11.25 mils.

State law requires the county to hold three public hearings before voting on the increase. Those meetings are scheduled for Thursday, July 19 at 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. and Monday July 30 at 4:30 p.m.

All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearings on the tax increase which will be held in the County Administration Building, 1235 Helen Hwy.

The proposed tax increase for a home with a fair market value of $160,000 is approximately $93.99 and the proposed tax increase for non-homestead property with a fair market value of $130,000.00 is approximately $78.83.

The millage rate will be voted on in a called meeting on Monday, July 30 at 4:45 p.m.

A press release issued by the county stated The Board of Commissioners works diligently to keep White County’s millage rate as low as possible while providing the necessary services to the ever-growing population and want to stress that their intent is to set a millage at the lowest rate possible in order to provide quality services to those we serve. Any millage rate over the rollback rate of 9.734 would have been considered a millage increase over the 2017 millage rate of 9.998.”
