The City sets dates to hold Millage Rate hearings

July 24, 2019

The City of Johns Creek is currently in the process of establishing its 2019 millage rate.  The city, incorporated in December 1, 2006 has published its five-year history of its tax digest, property revenues and millage rate
 
In 2018 the Johns Creek City Council adopted a final millage rate of 3.870. This represented a .49 decrease from the adopted 2017 rate of 4.360. 
 
Before setting the 2019 millage rate, Georgia law requires a public hearing to be held to allow the public an opportunity to provide comment on the subject. 
 
The public hearings will be held on Monday, Aug. 5 at noon and at 6:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall.
 
Adoption of the final millage rate for 2019 will take place at the Monday, Aug. 19, City Council Meeting at 7:00 p.m.
 
Each year, the Board of Tax Assessors is required to review the assessed value of taxable property in the county.  When the trends 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.
