NOTICE OF TAX INCREASE

The City of Carrollton Board of Education announces its intention to increase the 2018 property taxes it will levy this year by 2.52 percentage over the rollback millage rate.

Each year, the board of tax assessors is required to review the assessed value for property tax purposes 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.

When the total digest of taxable property is prepared, Georgia law requires that a rollback millage rate must be computed that will produce the same total revenue on the current years digest that last year’s millage rate would have produced had no reassessments occurred. The budget adopted by the City of Carrollton Board of Education requires a millage rate higher than the rollback millage rate, therefore, before the City of Carrollton Board of Education may set a final millage rate, Georgia law requires three public hearings to be held to allow the public an opportunity to express their opinions on the increase. All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearings on this tax increase to be held at the City of Carrollton Board of Education Board Room, 106 Trojan Drive, Carrollton, GA 30117 on Tuesday, September 4, 2018 at 8:00 a.m. Times of additional public hearings on this tax increase are Tuesday, September 4, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. and Tuesday, September 11, 2018 at 6:00 p.m.
