Carrollton BOE to hold hearings on millage rate

The City of Carrollton Board of Education intends to keep the 2022 millage rate the same as 2021.

Due to an increase in the overall tax digest, the proposed 18.500 mills will result in an additional 6.24 percent of property taxes collected compared to last year. The proposed increase for a home with a fair market value of $150,000 is approximately a $60.82 annual increase and the proposed tax increase for non-homestead property with a fair market value of $125,0000 is approximately a $54.30 annual increase.

The proposed millage rate is the same as the past five years. Revenue generated from the anticipated increase will support eight new school-level positions to accommodate student enrollment growth and pay raises for teachers and staff, according to Dr. Mark Albertus, superintendent. 

“Pay increases for educators haven't kept pace with those in the private sector; yet, the cost of living continues to rise,” said Albertus. “This also helps the district remain competitive in combatting the teacher shortage.”

Each year, the Carroll County Board of Tax Assessors is required to review the assessed value of taxable property in the county. When the trend of prices on properties that have recently sold in the county indicate there has been an increase in the fair market value of any specific property, the board of tax assessors is required by law to re-determine the value of such property and adjust the assessment. This is called a reassessment. 

The Carrollton Board of Education will hold public hearings related to this matter at the City of Carrollton Board of Education Board Room, 106 Trojan Drive, Carrollton, Georgia 30117 on July 11, 2022, at 8 a.m., July 12, 2022, at 6 p.m., and Aug. 4, 2022, at 8 a.m.

The board is expected to cast a formal vote on the millage rate at its regular monthly meeting on Aug. 10, also to be held at the board office, at 6 p.m.
